About MassRIDES

MassRIDES is a free program of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) with a mission to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality. In order to do this, MassRIDES partners with employers, colleges, and universities, to provide free commuter programs, resources, and solutions to help commuters and employers make smart transportation choices.

MassRIDES offers employer partners hands-on assistance in customizing commuter programs. We provide on-site events, worksite assessments, ridematching services, and commuter insurance resources. Our outreach coordinators are available statewide – from Cape Cod to the Berkshires and everywhere in between. They are knowledgeable about all transportation options within your community and are here to help you find the best commute options.

Safe Routes to School

Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a federally-funded initiative of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the sister program of MassRIDES. Safe Routes to School works with schools, communities, students, and families to increase biking and walking among elementary and middle school students in the Commonwealth. We promote a collaborative, community-focused approach that fosters partnerships between advocacy groups, law enforcement, education leaders, and public health departments.

Safe Routes to School is present in all 50 states and around the world, including Canada, Puerto Rico, Great Britain, and Europe. The Massachusetts Safe Routes to School Program distinguishes itself from other states’ efforts by providing a central source of services to all interested public elementary and middle schools through individual outreach and customizable program support.
