History

TranSComm (originally called the Inter-institutional Transportation Management Association) was incorporated in 1991 to coordinate the transportation needs of people that receive care from, are employed by or study at our sponsoring institutions. TranSComm is a pro-active organization committed to working collaboratively with local, state and federal agencies to propose and implement environmentally-sound transportation options that decrease traffic congestion and increase air quality for its employees, students, patients, visitors and community members.

Future Growth
New and expanding businesses along the Albany Street corridor are encouraged to join TranSComm and we would welcome their participation. We recognize that parking is limited and that it is  essential for employers and employees in our neighborhood to consider public transit, carpooling, cycling and walking.
