About Us

About Us

Smart Commute Metro North is a transportation management organization (TMO) founded in May 2012 by the twelve member jurisdictions of the North Area Transportation Alliance (NATA). As a non-profit, public-private partnership, Smart Commute offers free services to promote and support smarter commuting options such as transit and ride-sharing. Our mission is to inform and serve local communities and businesses by advocating for better transportation options and enhanced mobility for the north metro region. Our membership is open to businesses, public organizations, and individuals.

What is TDM?
Transportation Demand Management (TDM) refers to a broad set of strategies designed to reduce the number of single occupant vehicle trips and better meet accessibility needs by promoting the use of public transit, carpooling and vanpooling, bicycle and pedestrian travel, and reduced trip length length due to smarter land use. TDM can both allow better use of existing infrastructure and can limit the need for infrastructure expansion.


Smart Commute Metro North works with communities and businesses to promote transportation options and improvements, foster economic vitality and enhance mobility in the metro north region.

Smart Commute provides Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies with information and programs for commuting options like ridesharing and transit, and works with employers interested in providing teleworking and compressed work week programs.
