Serving Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Norwood, & Westwood
At the Neponset Valley TMA, we develop and manage commuting solutions
for members in the towns of Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Norwood, and Westwood.
The main goal of the Neponset Valley TMA is to reduce the number
of cars on the road to alleviate traffic congestion and improve
air quality. The TMA works closely with its members to achieve
these goals by creating a community-consciousness regarding traffic,
transportation and related matters. In addition, the TMA represents
the transportation needs of its members at both a local and state
level. They work with the local communities in the transportation
planning process and act as a voice for the businesses on transportation-related
issues at public forums.
To give more choices to commuters, the TMA offers the following
programs to its members:

form carpools and vanpools: With our web-based ridematching database, employees

- Guaranteed Ride Home program: Often referred to as the “ridesharer’s

rides are provided by taxi or rental car and at no cost to the
- Shuttle Services:
RaiLink Shuttle: Connects Computershare and Reebok employees on Royall Street in Canton to the Route 128 Commuter Rail Station, Ashmont Station and the Quincy Adams Red Line Station.

- Promotional events: The TMA can organize on-site events to
promote its programs to your employees.
