Zoom to work, don't emit challenge

Thursday, april 1 - Friday, april 16

As the weather warms up and the sun starts shining, take a chance to breathe in the fresh spring air & help keep it that way! 

Use one of the following zero transportation emissions modes: bike, walk, or telecommute for work at least 6 commutes (1 commute = one trip to or from your workstation) from April 1 to 16. Then, log your commutes on GoMassCommute for a tree to be planted on your behalf


Refresh your commute: CLEAN AIR PLEDGE

MONday, april 19 - Friday, april 30

For this year’s Earth Day, we’re encouraging you to consider the environmental impact of your commuting choices. Whether you telework, walk, run, roll, rideshare, or use transit, every sustainable transportation choice counts. 


Mobile combustion accounts for over 40% of statewide Massachusetts greenhouse gas emissions. Every commute decision impacts that number. Will you join us on Earth Day and commit to managing your commute emissions this year? 
 

Sign our Clean Air Pledge to commit to green commuting, log at least 4 green commutes during April 19-30 on GoMassCommute, & we'll plant a tree on your behalf

2021 Bike safety checks

Every year, Allston-Brighton TMA partners with local bicycle shops to offer free bike safety checks to employees and tenants at our member locations during warm weather months. The Bike Safety Checks are our way of getting to know the cycling community and rewarding cyclists for their dedication to a sustainable commuting choice.

Check below to see if there's an upcoming Bike Safety Check at your workplace. Please note: 2021 events are subject to cancellation, rescheduling, or replacement with virtual workshops as public health guidelines continue to evolve.
