Mode Shift Omaha advocates for transportation options that enhance quality of life and opportunities for everyone to live, work, and play founded in 2011 by a group of engaged citizens passionate about improving transportation options in Omaha, Nebraska. The mission of Mode Shift Omaha is to advocate for transportation options that enhance quality of life and opportunities for everyone to live, work, and play, which they achieve through education and engagement with members and the public, influencing policies and decision-making related to transportation and land use design, and monitoring transportation policies and plans and their implementation.
We are looking for volunteers to serve on teams focused on the following: advocacy, lobbying and elections city transparency transit walking biking urban land use
Every fourth Wednesday of the month, 7:00-8:30pm, we host meetings for anyone interested in Mode Shift and its mission. See our calendar for the next meeting date and location. At these meetings we inform and discuss with members the progress of various local transportation projects, feature one or two main topics, and announce volunteer opportunities.
Mode Shift Omaha’s Transportation Coffee Chats are informal monthly events featuring guests with various connections to transportation in the Omaha area. These meetups are part learning from the featured guest and part discussion. We meet every third Friday from 8am to 9am (sometimes 8:15-9:15 depending on the location) at different coffee shops around Omaha. See our calendar for the next meeting date and location. All are welcome!
