We created a team of volunteer experts to inspire and encourage the Minneapolis workforce!

Commute Ambassador

Commute Ambassadors are people who work Downtown and are passionate about sustainable commuting. The Commute Ambassador program provides a space to connect with other likeminded individuals and share ideas, tips, tricks, resources, and encouragement.

As part of the program, Commute Ambassadors work on Mini Projects that, with the support of Move Minneapolis, aim to increase sustainable transportation use at their downtown workplaces, shift workplace culture, and build community amongst peers and leaders.
