The Mayor’s Mobility Leadership Luncheon is Coming Up

Austin employers play a major role in solving the city’s mobility challenges, and those who choose to participate in the Mayor’s Mobility Challenge lead the way.

The Mobility Challenge is Mayor Adler’s invitation to employers to help change Austin’s transportation situation by encouraging better use of mobility options – telework, flex schedules, ride sharing, transit, bicycling, and more. Participating employers pledge to encourage and facilitate the use of mobility options because it will make their businesses stronger, reduce costs, and support growth.

So far, 47 companies have accepted the challenge. There is an opportunity for 20 more to be part of the latest Mobility Challenge class. Employers who choose to take on the challenge enjoy – at no cost –  consulting from mobility experts at Movability Austin and The Thrival Company. Those consultants will lead employers through a planning process and provide the tools and consulting support needed to build mobility programs that will get more people out of traffic and enjoying mobility options.

On October 30th, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce is hosting lunch for a select group of participants to learn more about the Mobility Challenge and to hear from Mayor Adler and from companies that have already taken the pledge. If you’re interested in attending, contact Thomas Butler for more information. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and join employers like Dell, Seton HealthCare, University of Texas at Austin and McGarrah Jessee to network, learn, and be part of a leading group of corporate stewards.
