Mode Shift Omaha is a public transportation advocacy nonprofit organization that was founded in 2011 by a group of engaged citizens passionate about improving transportation options in Omaha, Nebraska.
Influencing Omaha to become a city where anybody can:
- Safely and efficiently walk, cycle, take public transit, or choose other sustainable and less costly modes of transportation,
- Have a say, through democratic and transparent processes, in how the city and streets are designed and funded, and
- Experience a high quality of life.
To advocate for transportation options that enhance quality of life and opportunities for everyone to live, work, and play.
We achieve our mission 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 value safety, transparency, democratic engagement, and equality for all transportation users.
Mode Shift Omaha is a member of the Alliance for Biking and Walking.
