What is TravelWise?
The Solution to Growing Transportation Demand
As Utah continues to experience unprecedented growth, challenges inevitably follow. To address some of the transportation challenges created by this growth, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) developed TravelWise -- a set of strategies that encourage Utahns to use alternatives to driving alone. The state of Utah is asking individuals, businesses, communities and organizations to implement TravelWise strategies in an effort to reduce energy consumption, optimize mobility and improve air quality, ultimately improving the quality of life in Utah.
Energy Reduce Consumption
The less time you spend driving, the less energy you consume and that means more money in your pocket. Try biking, walking or telecommuting and if you have to drive, plan ahead to avoid rush hour.
Transportation Optimize Mobility
Fewer cars on the road mean better mobility all around. Take public transit, bike or walk, or chain your errands together when you venture out. Little changes can make a big difference the way our transportation system functions as a whole.
Improve Air Quality
Environment Improve Air Quality
By driving less and driving smarter, you can reduce emissions and improve air quality in Utah. Start a carpool, walk or bike, take public transit, or start trip chaining.
