Congratulations to our Prize Trolley Winners!
From 5 to 8 p.m. on June 1, Smart Trips took over a KAT trolley and hosted our version of the popular game show, Cash Cab. Around 75 people won movie tickets or gift cards, but only one could snag the grand prize: congratulations Lauren Garroway! We hope you enjoy your Kindle Touch!
And the Winners Are...KNOX ROCKERS!
The team who decorated the University of Tennessee Conference Center, nicknamed the Knox Rockers, won Smart Trips first Downtown Window Display contest with more than 26 percent of the 847 votes cast. Their window design focused on taking transit with a Flintstonesque theme. A very close second place went to Bliss (22%), and Mast General Store (14%) came in third.
In addition to congratulating the winners, we'd like to thank all the contestants for their very creative windows: Red Chair Architects, Reruns, TVA Credit Union, Jupiter Entertainment, Best Behavior Creative Club, and Fizz. See all the competing windows online >>
