Transportation ADVANCE

Transportation ADVANCE​

YOU CAN’T FIND THE CURE FOR CANCER SITTING IN TRAFFIC

Optimize your commute with Kendall Square Association Transportation ADVANCE! An initiative that empowers Kendall businesses to lead on transportation through action, ADVANCE uses experimental models that engage and empower employees to ease short term pain while exploring long term solutions.

THE PROBLEM: Massachusetts ranks an abysmal 47th nationally for commuting times and Boston recently earned the distinction of having the worst rush-hour congestion in the country. In June of this year, our transportation crisis hit its peak as a Red Line derailment sent our transportation system into a tailspin.

THE SOLUTION: In addition to leading the charge calling for increased funding dedicated to fix and expand our transportation infrastructure, Kendall companies that participate in the Transportation ADVANCE are deeply engaging their employees in a series of pilot experiments to innovate the perfect commute.
