2019 Demands more Transit Advocacy

This month we're catapulted into transit initiatives with transparency in mind. Our board would like to hear from Mode Shift members about what ignites their involvement and what issues should be prioritized for the New Year. During the January member meeting, we're hosting a brainstorming session! What do the members want to see in from us in 2019? Join us on January 23rd at 7 p.m. - More details here.
