Introducing Moving Omaha
The City of Omaha is working proactively to preserve the things we love about our 20-minute city – convenience, safety and prosperity. This means planning for Omaha’s transportation systems to support the expected growth of the community over the next several years. The plan supports the public’s desire for a choice when it comes to transportation. This includes walkable and bikeable communities, and promotes health, safety, access, equity and economic development throughout our community.
The community is already invested in the project. Omaha’s future transportation system supports active neighborhoods, along with financial and environmental responsibility. You can learn more about the plan at MovingOmaha.org. Please share this with someone else who you think would be interested.
Join us for Heyday on May Day!
Do you want a glimpse of the future of transportation in Omaha? Hop on your bike, lace up your shoes, grab a seat on the bus or take your car, pick up a friend and join us for Heyday on May Day on May 1 from 5 p.m. until dark. ModeShift Omaha, in conjunction with the City of Omaha Departments of Planning and Public Works, Park East Neighborhood Association, Market West Neighborhood Alliance and Greenstreet Foundation, are blocking off two lanes of Harney Street from 24th Avenue to 26th Street, for an open house highlighting options for Omaha’s transportation future. At 6:30 p.m., we’ll introduce a presentation of the Transportation Master Plan.
You’ll want to get there early and stick around, the transportation “Heyday” will continue into the night with live music, art activities, food trucks, bike races, hula hooping and yoga demonstrations, games and open houses of local businesses. Learn more at ModeShiftOmaha.org as we visualize the possibilities for transportation in Omaha.
