Seaport TMA partnered with A Better City TMA for #WTMBoston
Both organizations promoted the use of water transportation to and from downtown Boston and the Seaport through a Water Transit Awareness month during August.
The Seaport TMA has been working closely with the MCCA, MADOT and other key stakeholders on the implementation of the South Boston Waterfront Transportation Plan. In particular we have been working with a subcommittee that is looking at water transportation to the area. A key first step in creating water ferry service is to understand how commuters to the South Boston Waterfront are getting here.
In order to gather this knowledge the Seaport TMA put together a survey that we distributed to our member companies’ employees and on our website during the end of August.
