Ready to skip the holiday traffic and get straight to holiday shopping? In honor of the season, we are encouraging all Houstonians to celebrate The 12 Days of ConnectSmart by using the app as much as possible to help reduce Houston congestion and be entered into our holiday giveaway. From December 4th through the 15th, take ANY trip and be entered to win one of twelve $50 gift cards! There’s no limit on your number of entries, so for EVERY trip* you take, you’ll receive an ADDITIONAL entry into the drawing. (*Participation Rules Apply)
Complete a trip by driving, cycling, walking, instant carpooling, scheduled carpooling, or taking transit, during The 12 Days of ConnectSmart and you'll be entered into the drawing. That’s right, no matter how you travel to your holiday festivities, you can use ConnectSmart to plan and take a trip AND even help you find a parking space in a lot or at a meter! Watch this video to see how it works.
