World Car Free Day – Employer Participation

Downtown employers awarded “Best Workplace for Car-Free Commuters” 

Downtown employers vie for the title “Best Workplace for Car-Free Commuters” based on the percentage of their downtown workforce that commuted car-free on World Car-Free Day. Move Minneapolis provides employer resource kits, bus passes, and transportation coaching to energize workforce participation. Contact Liz Dailey for an employer kit.

Last year Amazon Minneapolis and When I Work took part and exceeded 70% staff participation to tie for top honors. CenterPoint Energy mobilized a large downtown staff to earn 2nd place, and Minnesota Orchestra was honored with third. “We were amazed by the commitments made by the ten competing employers,” said Mary Morse Marti, executive director of Move Minneapolis. “Not only do they offer pre-tax transportation benefits to their employees, but they really got into the spirit of seeing just how many of their employees could get to work without driving alone. Imagine if every downtown employer helped 70% of its workforce commute sustainably: there’d be no road congestion and very little car-generated pollution. And commuters would have a lot more fun.”

How your company can participate in World Car-Free Day 2018

Move Minneapolis would love to bring our transit and commuting show to your road! We can staff an information table in your employee lunchroom, in your lobby, or in a conference room. We can tailor a live presentation to your workforce. Want to know how to bicycle commute? Wonder where the buses stop? Thinking about adding transit passes to your HR benefits package? We can help—and not just for World Car-Free Day. Contact Liz Dailey at 612-466-7322,
