We work closely with state government, local businesses and municipalities in the Merrimack Valley region of Massachusetts.

The MVTMA is funded through membership dues. As a non-profit organization, we reinvest that money into solutions and incentive programs to our members in the Merrimack Valley region who are committed to sharing their commute (via ridesharing, biking, walking or taking public transportation to/from work) or choosing a transit option that doesn’t involve driving alone in a car.
