Each month the Chamber hosts a luncheon where you can come and receive updates on the Chamber and the community. The Chamber provides 80-100 attendees with the opportunity to become informed whether it’s through candidate forums, seasonal updates, or award ceremonies.
Downtown businesses have all felt the effects of the great work that Downtown On the Go does with their programs in transportation options and downtown living. Celebrate their good work at this Chamber Luncheon, while honoring downtown businesses through the Transportation Innovator Awards, learning about transportation projects in Tacoma and supporting DOTG’s work.

Each year, Downtown On the Go honors downtown businesses for their exemplary work in sustainable transportation and commute options through their Transportation Innovator Awards.
