Since 1995, Charles River TMA has worked to make commuting in Cambridge easier. Our programs help you get around without relying solely on driving and parking, while reducing your environmental footprint and keeping more money in your wallet.


What is a TMA?

We are a transportation management association (TMA), a membership based, non-profit association of businesses, institutions and municipalities that work together for the purpose of providing and promoting transportation options for commuters to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality. Charles River TMA is one of 14 Massachusetts TMAs. Learn more here.

The CRTMA is a great resource for us and our tenants at University Park. And the EZRide Shuttle to and from North Station is a terrific option for our commuters.

CRTMA’s operation of the EZRide Shuttle is a godsend to reduced congestion on Cambridge city streets from Lechmere to Cambridgeport.
