Smarttrips 2018: West Eugene

Thanks for participating in smarttrips: West Eugene! Over xxx kits were delivered to more than xx% of the neighborhood.


The final report will be published soon!


During the summer of 2018, the smarttrips: Eugene program came to the Churchill and Far West neighborhoods. The program was called smarttrips: West Eugene and reached a total of xxxx households with the goal of improving livability by encouraging residents to walk, bike, take transit, and carpool more often.


Approximately xxx% or xxxx households of target area residents requested smarttrips materials. Some of those participants also participated in one or more of our 10 smarttrips: West Eugene events. The City of Eugene also added over xxx new email contacts to its monthly Transportation Options e-newsletter, InMotion, as a result of the program.


Over the course of the program, the target area saw an increase in walking and bicycling. This target area was selected because it has good walking and bicycling infrastructure in the Ruth Bascom River Bank Path, with many low speed neighborhood streets, local schools, and frequent transit service along River Road. The neighborhood has an active Neighborhood Association and engaged community members with a supportive culture around active transportation. 


The program evaluated residents’ shifts in travel behavior using a household travel diary and opinion survey administered before and after the program.
