Starting a new TMA in Rochester's Destination Medical Center
Nick Lemmer - City of Rochester, Minnesota
Rochester is home to Mayo Clinic, the state’s largest employer, and the future Destination Medical Center, a $5 billion economic development initiative, making it one of the fastest growing communities in Minnesota. One of the many programs flowing out of DMC is Arrive Rochester, a transportation management association (TMA) sponsored by the city and launched in October 2018 with the goal of catalyzing, through TMA tools and incentives, a shift in commuting habits of Rochester’s growing downtown workforce. Nick Lemmer is a veteran marketer who joined the City of Rochester, Minnesota Parking and Transit division in 2016.
