Smart Trips annual Commuter Challenge begins June 1 with a new event,
the Downtown Prize Trolley, that promises lots of fun and prizes for participants.
Modeled after the TV show Cash Cab, the Prize Trolley will offer riders the chance to
win gift cards to downtown merchants such as Mast General Store, Bliss, Tomato Head
and others for correctly answering trivia questions.
The event coincides with First Friday and will run from 5 to 8 p.m. on one of the Gay
Street Trolleys. Smart Trips Commuter Challenge takes place from June 1 through July

part of their daily routine. Those who are able to carpool, bicycle, walk, or take the bus
at least once a week during the challenge qualify for prizes such as an Apple iPad,
Nook tablets, Timbuktu messenger bags, and more.
Smart Trips is funded by a
