National Garage

Garages dominate the US residential landscape. GoodForUs.Org is taking back the Garage. The National Garage is a metaphor for a place to keep the things you need to get around the way you want to get around. GoodForUs.Org can work with vendors at scale to provide a package of benefits and services that encourage more activing and less driving.

Through the MotorActive Survey, we are gathering input from members about which national benefits to prioritize. These include:
  • Magazine
  • Member price on merch
  • Online resource library
  • Community platform
  • Non-owners’ or pay-per-mile car insurance offers
  • Discounts on bikes, car rentals, trailers, activing gear, and
  • Mobility as a-Service (MAAS)
  • Incentives-Challenges-Rewards for personal/ community goals
  • Concierge for activing more and driving less
  • Connections to advocacy groups and campaigns
Local Garage

Local Garages

Local garages won’t necessarily be an actual physical space, but some might! GoodForUs.Org will provide the template and support for organizations that want to host hyperlocal encouragement programs. Local garages will have at least one part-time “garage manager” and will contain both products (car/bike/trailer/stroller sharing) and services (coaching, know-how exchange).
We partner with existing local organizations to provide a hyper local package of resources.

Each Local Garage will have a unique mix of benefits and resources based on input from local members, but could include a combination of the the following:
  • Garage Manager and Local Partner Host
  • Bike Library and Services
  • Trailers, Strollers and Carts
  • Car Sharing Mentors, Buddies & Coaches
  • Know-How & Errand Sharing
  • Nearby Discounts & Deals
  • Communications and News
  • Rides, Walks, Workshops, Outings, Community Rituals & Parties
  • Service Projects
  • Advocacy Connections

Working Groups

Let’s roll up our sleeves and have some fun! We’re setting up a structure that makes it easier for people to get involved and help build a movement around activing more and driving less. Everyone has something to contribute and we’d love to get you involved.

Volunteering

Excited about helping people thrive by activing more and driving less? To scale up our impact, we’re growing our people pipeline through key volunteer roles, many of which will likely lead to staff roles. The best way to get involved quickly is as a volunteer;

These are some of our current volunteer roles:
  • Newsletter mailing; we need someone who can streamline the mailing of our printed newsletter.
  • Research; survey design, data analysis, and data visualization
  • Writers and content creators
  • Graphic designers
  • Local Organizers
