Transit for Livable Communities - TLC Calendar of Events

4/2/2015, 06:00PM - 09:00PM: Transportation Action Night with TLC and Move MN

Transit for Livable Communities is sponsoring the Move MN phone bank on Thursday, April 2. Volunteer with us!

Together we'll be making calls to ensure a balanced, long-term solution for transit, walking, bicycling, roads, and bridges is passed by the state legislature this session.

Volunteering will involve talking with other Minnesotans and asking them to contact their legislator in support of transportation funding. We will help everyone get started and provide a call script—and pizza!

If you can help, please sign up below!

Questions? Contact Adam at adamy@tlcminnesota.org.

4/21/2015, 09:00AM - 03:30PM: Rethinking Transportation in the Workplace (April 21 Workshop)

This workshop for nonprofit staff focuses on new ways of approaching transportation in the workplace. Interactive and experiential, the workshop shares policies, procedures, and options some organizations already are offering. It points to the ways rethinking transportation has upsides for your employees, volunteers, and the communities you serve. Participants will also gain an understanding of how our transportation systems have been designed over time. 

Key take-aways:

Trip-planning. Learn how to find out what routes are possible from home to work and for trips during the day—for riding transit, bicycling, walking, and combinations—and what can make these easier choices.

Validate for more than parking. More workplaces are including commuter benefits for transit or arriving on foot or on bicycle. Find out how adjusting your compensation structure and other office systems and amenities can make your workplace more competitive and more welcoming to the communities you serve.

Multimodal mojo. Be the person in your crowd who knows first-hand how all the options work, from checking out a Nice Ride bicycle to bus transfers, from scoring the HOURCAR for the work meeting to the nearest electric vehicle charging station.

The workshop fee is $35 per person.

Organizations that have signed up for Transportation Leadership Certification need to send at least 1 staff person to a workshop. Workshops will be offered April 21, April 29, May 5, and May 21. The workshops have a maximum of 24 and minimum of 8 attendees. Workshops will close when filled and may be cancelled if below the minimum.
