Omaha & Council Bluffs Employers: Join The Next Round of ConnectGO Getting To Work Surveys

ORBT bus in Omaha, Nebraska

Do you know how your employees get to work? Do you know how they would like to? We are now recruiting Omaha and Council Bluffs employers to participate in the next round of ConnectGO Getting to Work Surveys to answer these questions and more.

More than 4,000 employees in the Omaha metro area participated in the first round of surveys between November 2020 to June 2021. A series of nine surveys, representing an employee population of nearly 16,000 people from more than 20 organizations, showed an exciting opportunity to shift 17% of pre-pandemic drive-alone trips to active commuting and working from home with supportive programming. Learn more about the findings of our first round of surveys here.

MAPA is now contracting Verdis Group to conduct a second round of active commuting surveys for employers in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area. As our city grows, it’s important to understand how people are getting to and from work right now and how they would actually prefer to commute. With this information, we can create a city that talented people want to call home.

What You Get

Participating employers will receive:

  • An Active Commuting Report
  • One hour of consultation with us to go over key findings and recommendations
  • Eligibility to receive additional MAPA grant support for implementing recommendations 

Project Partners

The ConnectGO Getting to Work Survey is a partnership between ConnectGO, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, Metropolitan Area Planning Agency (MAPA), and Verdis Group. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration and the Peter Kiewit Foundation.
