About Mode Shift Omaha

Mode Shift Omaha is a nonprofit transportation advocacy organization that was founded in 2011 by a group of engaged citizens passionate about improving transportation options in Omaha, Nebraska. Download a Mode Shift fact sheet here.

Our Vision

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.

Our Mission

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.

Our Values

We value safety, transparency, sustainability, democratic engagement, and equality for all transportation users.
