Mission and History

Our Mission

The Seaport TMA is a nonprofit transportation management association of employers, property managers, and land developers in the South Boston Waterfront working to improve area transportation and accessibility and incentivize sustainable commute options.

In collaboration with the City of Boston, Massport, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the MBTA, and other agencies, we promote the use of non-drive alone commute options and advocate for transportation infrastructure and programs supportive of such.

Through advocacy, education, and programming, we seek to support the economic vitality of the South Boston Waterfront by easing commuting and reducing the number of single occupancy vehicles traveling to the district.

Our History

In 1996, three area stakeholders – Fidelity Investments; the Drew Company, on behalf of the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center; and P&G Gillette – came together and formed the Seaport TMA as a neighborhood advisory group to maintain accessibility during ongoing and future development of the area.

Today, as the South Boston Waterfront is rapidly developing and becoming a hub of innovation for businesses, the Seaport TMA continues to advocate for accessibility and encourage sustainable commute options.

The Seaport TMA’s membership base now represents 30,000 commuters and one million annual visitors, and includes a range of organizations in finance, technology, architecture, law, consumer goods, hospitality, the working port, and more. Membership with the Seaport TMA is open to any organization in the South Boston Waterfront.
