Refugees and Public Transportation

Refugees and Public Transportation 2Purpose Statement: Refugees in our community may face challenges while navigating Omaha’s public transportation system.  Raising awareness may lead to changes in public transportation, orientation for refugees, and increased knowledge of Omaha’s public transportation system.

Goal: We will convene a community discussion to explore the issue of public transportation for refugees in Omaha.  We hope that this exploratory discussion might develop connections between city services, Metro Transit, representatives of the refugee population, refugee community leaders, refugee service organizations, and others.
