Commute Smart B2B Challenge – May 1 – 31



The Commute Smart B2B Challenge happens every year in the month of May. We invite 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. We encourage participating employers to designate team captains to recruit and cheer on the team members.

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.

We are funded by the Federal Department of Transportation and the NH Turnpike Authority and sponsored by COAST (Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation).
