Become a Commute Ambassador!

Do you commute by transit, walking, biking, scooting or carpool?

Think back to your first time boarding an express bus or your first bike ride into downtown. That first trip can be daunting. We invite you to inspire your colleagues with a little encouragement and know-how from an expert: you!

The Commute Ambassadors program assembles a group of downtown workers who are driven by their passion for sustainable commuting. There is no cost, just a commitment to attend four luncheons and willingness to encourage your company and coworkers. Be part of the change!

Each lunch-and-learn will explore topics in sustainable commuting. You'll set and achieve goals and bring real change to your workplace. Meetings will be hosted at MSR Design’s beautiful new office at 510 Marquette Ave S., steps away from the Nicollet Mall LRT Station.

Move Minneapolis provides tools for a better, faster, economical, and sustainable commute. Our Commute Ambassadors help inspire their workplaces and co-workers to explore these transportation options.
