About Missoula In Motion
Looking for ways to cut back on gas, avoid traffic and reduce harmful emissions, while preserving Missoula's top rated quality of life? It starts with taking advantage of Missoula’s sustainable transportation options, and Missoula In Motion can help.
We’re an organization designed to help local businesses, institutions and individuals reduce traffic and improve air quality in Missoula by promoting sustainable transportation options, which include walking, biking, car/vanpooling, riding the bus and telecommuting.
History & Mission
Missoula In Motion (MIM), a program of the Transportation Division of the City of Missoula's Development Services, was founded in 1997. MIM strives to educate Missoulians on their transportation options for both school and work commutes. Through various outreach projects and events, including the Way to Go! Club, MIM promotes the many sustainable transportation options offered in the Missoula community in an effort to reduce congestion, pollution and stress, while promoting both individual and community health.
Missoula In Motion is funded primarily through Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program funds. These funds are allocated to MIM by the Montana Department of Transportation who receives them from the federal government. The funds are designated for programs and activities that will help communities attain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) set forth in 1990.
We offer programs to make sustainable commuting a reality for both individuals and businesses.
- Way To Go! Club– (WTG!C) our individual commuter club provides rewards and incentives for people who commit to commuting sustainably one day per week. Want to explore all the alternatives to driving alone in Missoula while earning rewards? Sign up for the Way to Go! Club now!
- Momentum – our business and employee outreach program provides quarterly meetings, outreach, and support for businesses so they can support their employees' and customers' use of sustainable transportation. Contact us for a customized travel analysis and commute trip reduction plan.
Missoula In Motion undergoes periodic review to ensure that our programs and services are not only meeting the needs of Missoulians, but are deploying Transportation Demand Management (TDM) services effectively. Our most recent review was completed by UrbanTrans in April 2012. Click Here to download a copy of the report.
