Value of Membership

Seaport TMA membership provides employers with a variety of benefits:

Advocacy: We listen to you and advocate for improved transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and roadway infrastructure such as traffic signal retiming, crosswalks, bicycle infrastructure and enhancements, and more.

Compliance: Membership with the Seaport TMA promotes compliance with access and rideshare agreements, such as:

Massachusetts DEP Rideshare Compliance Assistance
The Rideshare Regulation requires some organizations to develop plans and set goals for reducing commuter drive-alone trips by 25 percent. If your company is subject to the regulation, the Seaport TMA can offer compliance assistance and guidance on the annual reporting requirements.

City of Boston Transportation Access Plan Agreement (TAPA) Compliance Assistance
The City of Boston requires developers and land owners to incorporate transportation demand management (TDM) measures into their projects, some of which are provided by membership in the Seaport TMA.

Communications and outreach: Our members receive regular communications including transportation advisories (traffic, special events, construction, parking changes), a monthly area calendar of events, and other member updates to stay informed about changes that may impact commuting and general activity in the South Boston Waterfront. We also regularly present at members’ events such as transportation fairs, sustainability events, and benefits presentations.

Employee programs: The Seaport TMA offers a host of commuter programs, which actively promote and incentivize sustainable transportation to work, ease commuting, and contribute to employee satisfaction. These include Guaranteed Ride Home, Carpool Matching and Rewards, and more.

Membership Meetings: Representatives of Seaport TMA member companies meet for presentations on a bimonthly basis, at which business leaders can network, and learn from speakers on topics of transportation, area construction, and more.

Relocation Assistance: The Seaport TMA helps to relocate new member companies through employee presentations, outreach materials and commuter consulting. If your company is moving to the area, contact us to learn about how we can help at info@seaporttma.org.
