    Dorothy Fennell, Program Manager for the Longwood Collective Transportation Management Association (TMA), authored a piece in the Boston Globe published on March 19th about the critical role that TMAs play in our communities. The article highlights how TMAs help educate and inform employers, employees, and commuters about better alternatives to driving to work alone, and the resources that are available to help make that transition.

    Our Longwood Collective TMA is here to support commuters in making the multi-mobility switch to improve public health, reduce emissions, ease traffic congestions, and unlock economic opportunity for all. Read the full article here.
