Mike Vergeer

Mike coordinates transportation options programs for the Rogue Valley Transportation District. His Dutch heritage very much informs his professional work and local activism; we, too, can shift our culture such that choosing to bus, bike, or walk becomes ordinary–our default way of getting around. He is a dad to two young kids, a professional bike safety instructor certified by the League of American Bicyclists, and a founding member of a local advocacy group called Streets for Everyone, an action team of the Ashland Climate Collaborative.
