CommuteSmart

Could you or someone you know use an extra $12 in your wallet every day?

By replacing a 40-mile round-trip commute with carpooling, you can save at least that much. A commute by bicycling, walking, public transit, or telecommuting can help your wallet even more, and puts even fewer cars on the road. All of these efforts help preserve our road conditions, saves taxpayer dollars, and puts more vacation money in your pocket!

By participating, you’re also doing your part to preserve the environment. For those who are able to make their trips by biking or walking, it also keeps you feeling great too.

The best way to participate is to stick with your CommuteSmart habits and encourage your friends and coworkers to join you.

If you’d like to do more, we welcome new and returning volunteers to sustain our efforts year after year! Send an email and let us know that you want to get involved. Thank you!

CommuteSmart New Hampshire encourages people like you to choose environmentally-friendly, healthy and economical transportation options rather than driving your car alone. By encouraging our friends, family and coworkers to rethink their commutes, we’ll keep New Hampshire cleaner and our roads free of unnecessary congestion. CSNH is a partnership of businesses, schools, transit providers, regional planners and other volunteers leading the effort.

CSNH is an activism effort of the simplest kind. Share your experience with others!
