Happy July, Auggies!

Did you know that 78 percent of local commuters who drive alone say that they would try other ways to get to work if their employer provided a commuter benefit?* Did you know that Augsburg provides a discounted Metropass for faculty and staff? Do you need help figuring out the ins and outs of using transit? We can help you!

Move Minnesota, in partnership with Augsburg University, will host experiential transit trips to common destinations in Minneapolis this summer. Ride transit with us for free as we teach tips and tricks for taking the bus, the light rail, and more. Join us for either trip, or both! RSVP here: https://forms.gle/eNV7RBnFwWf43hKL8

We will provide free transit passes, and answer any and all questions you may have!
