MA Clean Air Challenge

The North Shore TMA is proud to participate in the 2014 Massachusetts Clean Air Challenge

Join us September 22nd - 26th and win prizes just for commuting to work!

Accept the challenge and let’s show each other how much we can save in money and in carbon emissions by changing the way we commute to work.

Shift your mode by walking, biking, carpooling, vanpooling or taking public transit (or telecommute) to work at least once during the week of September 22nd.

Log your trips on the North Shore TMA’s NuRide portal and you could win one of 5 daily $50 prizes or one of three $100 grand prizes.

We will provide a pizza party, certificate and bragging rights to the company with the greatest participation. Don't miss out!
