Get Involved

Do you want more safe and efficient 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 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.

If you’d like to volunteer, we could use help for the following:

  • Write blog posts about transportation-related issues.
  • Monitor the weekly City Council agenda for transportation-related items.
  • Monitor the Nebraska State Legislature for transportation-related bills.
  • Contact Omaha-area event organizers and encourage them to communicate multimodal options for getting to the event.
  • Represent Mode Shift on planning committees.
  • Help update the website and add new resources.

Please contact us if you’d like to get involved.

We also welcome your financial support. Please make a one-time or monthly donation here.

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

Educate Yourself

  • About Omaha complete streets (streets designed and operated to enable safe access for all users).
  • Attend our monthly member meetings, open to anyone who is interested in supporting our mission (see the calendar on the right for upcoming dates)

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.

    If these links do not work, you can e-mail me back and I can resend them throught yahoo mail and they will work. Thank you.
