paths

BIKE. CARPOOL. WALK. TELECOMMUTE. RIDE THE BUS. WIN!

The Commute Smart B2B Challenge invites all employers located in Seacoast NH to compete for the honor of having the smartest, greenest commuting workforce. There are great prizes, trophies, social media buzz, and the exhilarating thrill of victory!

This competition is all about getting more people to use sustainable transportation like biking, riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, walking or telecommuting. Skateboarding, riding a moped or two on a motorcycle also count!

A team captain (or co-captains) recruit and cheer on the team members, with lots of support from CommuteSMART. Click here for more information.

There are a number of prizes, and EVERYONE WINS by saving money, lowering stress and doing something good for the environment. The teamwork feels great, too!

What is CommuteSmart?

CommuteSMART Seacoast is a Transportation Management Association (TMA) that promotes smart commuting options like carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus, bicycling, walking and teleworking. Our mission is to support a livable and economically vibrant greater Seacoast community.
