Get smart about your commute this week to help save the environment.

Monday, June 6th through Friday, June 10th is the 22nd Annual Smart Commute Week in Traverse City.

People are encouraged to walk, bike, carpool or take the bus to work.

It's an effort to get people outside and be a little more environmentally conscious.

You can register for free to be on a team and compete for prizes.

“There's individual categories, and then there's small, medium and large,” said TART Trails Marketing and Event Coordinator Kate Lewis. “Large being 50 people or more. The teams compete for trophies that are made by local artist TJ Carroll.”

Prizes include gift certificates for BATA and a kayak brew tour.
