Tell us about your commute to work!


BMC, in collaboration with the TranSComm TMA and the City of Boston, invite you to provide feedback on your current and future commute to work. Results from this survey will provide important information to transportation providers, policy makers, and employers on how to meet the needs of commuters like you and help ensure your return to the work site is safe, reliable, and sustainable.

This survey can be completed by all individuals currently working from home or planning to return to work in the coming months.  The survey will take no more than 10 minutes to complete. As a thank you for your time, all participants can choose to be entered in a drawing for one of twenty monthly Bluebikes memberships (courtesy of Bluebikes).
