1) May 2021 is "Mobility" Month                                 

2) Midland Mobility Challenge   

May 21 - June 6, 2021 

During the final weeks of May and the early days of June, residents are encouraged to park their personal vehicles and travel about the city by walking, biking, taking an e-scooter, or using Dial-a-Ride transportation instead.  While using a different mode of transportation, the goal is for residents to better understand how the city is built for these different modes. 

If your main mode of transportation is not a personal vehicle, you are encouraged to try something different during this time.

Write down your observations and use them to help complete the Transportation & Mobility Survey (details below).

Some questions to ask yourself during this challenge:

  • How easy was it to use this different form of transportation?

  • Did it take you a longer or a shorter amount of time to use the different mode?

  • How safe did you feel using a different mode?

  • Were you able to accomplish the trip you set out to take using a different mode?
