U Gets Commuter Choice Award

Congratulations to the University of Minnesota for winning the 2007 TMO Commuter Choice Award for Outstanding Promotion by a large organization. The U is being honored for its successful implementation of a transit and transportation response plan after the I-35W bridge collapse.

The Council is hosting a reception before our May 16th Council Meeting to honor the U and Minneapolis’ other winners from 9-9:30am in room 319 of Minneapolis City Hall, across the hall from the Council chambers. We will also be passing an honorary resolution from the City at the beginning of the Council meeting immediately following the reception.

The University did a great job reducing their single-occupancy auto trips into campus after the collapse. I'm hoping we can continue to work together to keep these reductions in place as the new bridge opens.
