Growth and change bring challenges, including traffic and congestion. We are continuously exploring new mobility options while prioritizing freedom of movement, mode choice, accessibility, and practicality for the public, government, businesses, and visitors. Effective transportation solutions encompass both micro and macro thinking—reaching beyond the obvious challenges surrounding I-25 and C-470, into deeper arterials and feeder streets, right to the doorsteps of our residents.

In Denver South, we recognize big, meaningful challenges and opportunities around transportation require both cross-sector and cross-jurisdictional collaboration. As part of our ongoing commitment to improving mobility throughout Denver South, now and into the future, we’ve launched a new program, Employer Transportation Champions.  This program amplifies the vital role of the business community in these important conversations. We coordinate, educate and engage this group of employer representatives every other month to discuss local transportation issues including:

  • First- and last-mile challenges
  • Best practices for encouraging transportation options and behavior change in the workplace
  • Transportation options specific to carpooling, vanpooling, and school-pool services
  • Increased transit utilization
  • Teleworking and flexible work support with policy and program development
  • Employee retention and recruitment
  • Regional air quality goals and environmental sustainability

Employer Transportation Champions gain access to free resources and information that help them advocate internally within their organizations while serving as a vital voice on behalf of their organization. Dedicated ETCs will advocate and promote transportation options within their company. Ideal candidates have established communication pathways and support from higher level management for transportation culture initiatives.

Want to make a difference? Sign up to become a Denver South Employee Transportation Champion for your organization by contacting Sheryl Machado at or Evan Gatseos at
