Looking for that cushy Ambassadorship? Look no further


You're not a career politician owed favors by your congressional delegate.  You're not a super rich contributor to a political party.  So how do you get that coveted ambassador post you've always wanted (nay, deserved)?  Become a Transportation Options Ambassador!

Ambassadors are amazing volunteers that represent the Bureau of Transportation and present information to encourage pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers, and transit riders to travel safely together.  As part of our SmartTrips program, Ambassadors will assist on guided Ten Toes Walks, Senior Strolls, and Portland By Cycle and Women on Bikes rides and clinics.  We also have opportunities for volunteers to help out with the Safe Routes to School program by fitting helmets, wrenching or outreach at events, and assisting on bike rides.  By being an Ambassador you will have a great time while seeing some of Portland's beautiful southeast neighborhoods.

We have a two hour training available on May 8th and May 16, 6-8PM, to prepare Ambassadors for the season.  If you are interested in becoming an Options Ambassador, please fill out an application.  If you would like more information, please contact Janis McDonald.  Looking forward to a great summer and who knows, your next stop may be the U.S. embassy in Paris...
