For the sixth year, Move Minneapolis celebrates World Car-Free Day – a day to imagine transportation without being dependent on the automobile. Move Minneapolis presents Car-Free MSP 2021 with three days of virtual and in-person events September 21 – 23.

After 18 Months, What’s New?

Today’s workforce does not have to go back to a stressful, congested, carbon-heavy, pre-pandemic mindset of drive-alone commuting. Move Minneapolis can help you and your workplace during Car-Free MSP…and beyond. We can help provide a little transportation coaching and offer some new commuting tools.

Tuesday, Sept. 21, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. CST: WEBINAR:”(When You) Return To Downtown”

For the past 18 months the pandemic closed most downtown offices, employees teleworked from home. About one third of the workforce is now back at the office, more are returning on a staggered schedule this fall and winter. As much as COVID has had a devastating impact on us all, workers returning to the office will find some welcome improvements to their commutes. This webinar highlights the new programs and infrastructure that didn’t exist pre-pandemic. Improvements to make the “return to downtown” easier, faster, and more climate friendly. Join this lively discussion about new transportation options employers and employees will want to know about.
