Serving Canton, Dedham, Norwood, & Westwood
At the Neponset Valley TMA, we develop and manage commuting solutions
for members in the towns of Canton, Dedham, 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:
- On-line ridematching to
form carpools and vanpools: With our web-based ridematching database, employees
who want to rideshare can find the most logical matches using

that of finding highly qualified matches to form carpools and
- Guaranteed Ride Home program: Often referred to as the “ridesharer’s

- Railink Shuttles: One shuttle service connects employees in
the University Avenue and the Route 1A Norwood areas to the Quincy
Adams Red Line Station and the Route 128 Commuter Rail Station.

promote its programs to your employees.
