Transportation-Related Organizations Participating in Omaha Gives 2016

Mode Shift Omaha is participating in this year’s Omaha Gives and would very much appreciate your support.

A gift of $10 or more will help us make the Omaha area a place where we all have options to safely walk or bicycle to the market or park and can efficiently take public transit to school or work–options that create a thriving and growing community, provide economic opportunities, and attract and retain young and old to our city.   237 more words
