Share your Transportation Story Win Dollars for Your Transportation Project!


Got a favorite trail or bike lane in your town? Have a certain bus route that gets you to work every day? Is there a street nearby that’s in desperate need of TLC? Want faster passenger rail? Capture it on video and tell us about it. You could win a prize!

We want to hear your transportation story, good or bad, so that we can tell a bigger story about transportation in Michigan. We’ll use the videos to help state legislators make wise decisions about Michigan’s transportation future.

Capture your transportation story on any video device and we’ll post it on our Lights, Camera,Transportation YouTube channel.

All contest participants will be entered in a raffle to win one of twenty $50 gift cards for a business of their choice. In addition, the organization who submits the most videos will receive $1,000 towards its transportation initiative of choice. Help us keep the transportation conversation moving with your story as we work toward a greater Michigan.

These questions can guide you as you share your vision for transportation in Michigan:

1) How would you like to get around (commute)?
2) What do you like/dislike about your community’s or Michigan’s transportation system? (roads, rails, sidewalks, buses, bikeways, trails, walking paths)
3) How would you change your community’s or Michigan’s transportation system?
4) How should these transformations be funded?
5) If given a chance to talk with Michigan decision-makers about your transportation visions, what would you ask of them?
