Service in the City


February and March Volunteer
Opportunities

Need Support Selling New Transit Pass
Starting in February, new transit passes will be available for Salt Lake City residents. Mayor Becker and UTA have partnered to design a new annual pass available for $360, or $30 a month (to learn more, click here). This is a great deal and will hopefully encourage even more people to protect our air quality by utilizing public transportation. Throughout late February, March and April, we'll need several volunteers able to help us sell these new passes at libraries and local events. As a volunteer, you'd be helping answer questions for customers in line, administering short surveys, and potentially take photos for people's passes. If you're interested in volunteering for one of these shifts, please email Amanda at amanda.anderson@slcgov.com.

We need 2 volunteers for each of these shifts!
Monday, Feb. 26th 5 - 8 pm at the Sprague Library
Saturday, March 1st 10 am - Noon at the Sweet Library
Saturday, March 1st from 1 - 3 pm at the Downtown Library

Open Streets Liaisons
Even though the 2nd annual Open Streets is still a few months away, we need two volunteers who will help with a special project in February to prepare for the event. The two volunteers interested in this role would help Service in the City, Bike Utah and the Gallivan Center gather information from local businesses along the Open Streets route. These volunteer would talk to managers at shops and restaurants between 200 E and 300 W along 300 S. Volunteers would be responsible for passing out flyers with Open Streets event information and gathering contact info from the manager at each store. The schedule for this is flexible and volunteers would be able to choose whatever day and time would be most convenient for them as long as the businesses are open. If interested, please contact Amanda by February 7th. As a thank you, two free passes for ice skating at the Gallivan will be given to both volunteers who sign up.
