Get Involved

Do you want more options in how you get around Omaha? If so, there are many ways you can help make it happen.

Participate in Transportation-Related Organizations

You can follow @ModeShiftOmaha or fb.com/ModeShiftOmaha for policy and project updates. Sign up for the ModeShiftOmaha email list to get announcements about meetings and other ways to be involved. We also could use help in various areas from volunteers.

You can also get involved with other organizations in the Omaha area working on transportation-related issues.

Participate in Planning Processes

Educate Yourself

  • About complete streets; streets designed and operated to enable safe access for all users.

Other Ways You Can Influence Transportation Policies

  • Write a letter to the editor or include information about transportation choices in your neighborhood association or work newsletter. See the “why we need more choice” page for some helpful information.
  • Contact the City of Omaha to make comments about the transportation master plan and transportation policies.
  • Participate in Engage Omaha, the city’s virtual town hall.
  • Contact OMetro about how to improve the bus system.

Ride your bike, take the bus, walk, and carpool when you can!

    I have made a future rail mass transit map that shows future streetcar, light rail and commuter rail routes. I want to send these maps to as many different places as I can because I feel Omaha’s future can be greatly improved with rail transit. For mode shift to show interest and or support in these plans may give them more credibility and get them more attention from city officials.
