Transit Ambassadors through the Transit Ambassador Program of South Placer County will provide help and training for people who are new to using public transportation in the area. Volunteers are asked to commit 5 hours per month for a minimum of 6 months
to assist staff at community outreach events or to help transit passengers on area buses and at transit transfer locations.
The Bike/Walk Ambassador will assist Public Works staff by providing information to the public to improve public awareness
of bicycling and walking programs as well as bicycle and pedestrian safety issues in Roseville.
Volunteer duties may include one or more of the following:
Bike or walk around and near schools within Roseville during school commute hours to assist students and parents as they bike or walk to and from school;
Bike or walk on city multi-use trails and through parks to promote bicycling and walking which may include providing verbal or written pedestrian, bicycle or trails information and answer questions
to the public;
Encourage and reward safe bicycling and pedestrian behavior, and as needed provide “Free Bike Helmet” Coupons to children riding their bicycle without helmets, if they don’t own a helmet;
On occasion, assist at fun community events to support, encourage and engage bicyclists (including such events as Earth Day, May is Bike Month, Energizer Stations, Smart Cycling Clinics, Roseville
Bikefest and School Walk/Bike assemblies and rodeos);
As requested, assist with surveys that document bike and pedestrian characteristics on trails and at schools; and
As needed, provide feedback and knowledge that is gained in the field, to city staff, so staff can resolve issues and meet the community’s needs.
Roseville’s Alternative Transportation Division contributes to a vibrant, healthy community by providing essential and safe transportation options which include transit, bikeway and alternative commute programs. We help area residents maintain or regain
their independence through education and outreach which results in reducing vehicle miles traveled and improving air quality in the region.
