WHY SHOULD I COMMUTE SMART?

Share a ride, take the bus, telework, ride your bike or walk to work. You’ll be happier, healthier, and wealthier!

Gas and car maintenance is very expensive.  Getting stuck in traffic and driving in bad weather cause stress. And, sustainable commuting options shrink your carbon footprint for a cleaner, greener Seacoast.

Do your part by commuting smart! Even if it’s just one or two days a week.

CommuteSMARTseacoast, a TMA (Transportation Management Association), promotes smart commuting options such as carpooling, taking transit, bicycling, walking, and teleworking.

Any employer in the greater Seacoast region of New Hampshire is welcome to join as a partner.  Membership is FREE.  Promotional events and materials are available to members, as well as the Emergency Ride Home program (some restrictions apply).

Use our confidential online carpool matching service to find a neighbor who has a similar commute and wants to share the ride.

Our annual June Commuter B2B Challenge is a great way to have fun commuting smart.

Sign up for our quarterly e-newsletter with information on commuter events, contests, workshops on biking,  and more!
