We hope you are excited for our third annual Our Shared Street Pop-Up event. This family-friendly block party is a fun way to learn about the available transit options in your neighborhood, get to know your neighbors, and discover local businesses.
Our partners play a huge role in making this event a great experience for everyone. They give attendees an opportunity to explore and interact with local businesses. We're excited to showcase our mobility experience station where you can try new mobility options. A special thank you to our sponsors, Dorchester Apartments (E.G. Reinsch Companies), Lime, Meridian at Courthouse Commons (Paradigm), and Oakland Apartments (E.G.Reinsch Companies). Their support makes this event possible. Below is a sneak peek at some of our partners for this year’s event.
