Go Glendale (Glendale Transportation Management Associates, Inc. ) just relaunched and relocated with new branding and outreach to downtown property managers as well as employers and residents throughout Glendale.
Director Erika Kampe (pictured) spoke after the 450 N. Brand Blvd. office’s ribbon cutting this morning. The sun burned through the morning haze beautifully as she spoke, and several pedestrians were walking past the office building plaza. This is a very good time for Glendale to up its game in helping the city’s office dwellers, apartment tenants, and outlying residents (!) get around the city pleasantly and safely.
Go Glendale’s services for property managers are focused on cutting down on drive-alone trips, making it easy for tenants to use alternative modes and less parking. Services for employers focus on carpools, incentives and transit pass programs.
Check out Go Glendale as a centralized source of information on
- transit, bike and carpool resources
