Commute Smart NH is a partnership between the state’s regional planning commissions, state agencies, and various non-profit transportation-oriented programs, that ecourages and assists people in choosing sustainable transportation options in place of driving single occupancy vehicles such as walking, bicycling, carpooling, telecommuting and using public transportation.
CommuteSmart NH is the result of a rebranding initiative that occurred in 2015. Formally Commute Green NH, the program evolved from National Bike to Work Day and has grown steadily over the last decade. Our regional organizations have organized regional and statewide challenges and events as well as working with local employers to provide their employees with the resources to choose smart commute alternatives.
In December 2018, CommuteSmart NH was awarded funding from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation’s Community Technical Assistance Program (CTAP) and the New Hampshire Office of Strategic Initiatives to provide transportation demand management services and rideshare coordination across New Hampshire. With that funding, we have been able to work with employers and commuters from across the state as well as host our pilot statewide challenge in June of 2019.
If you’d like to do more, we welcome new and returning volunteers to sustain our efforts year after year! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you want to get involved.
***Due to current public health concerns, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 June Statewide Challenge. In the meantime, we will be focusing our efforts in creating a bigger and better fall challenge for this October. Please check back for more information in the coming months.
