ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW

pointA is a non-profit that envisions sustainable transportation options for everyone. Our goal is to connect people to the places they want to go. We aim to give people and businesses transportation options that benefit the environment, the economy and the well-being of our communities. In collaboration with our funders, members and partners, we facilitate transportation demand management programs and advocate for sustainable transportation.

Our core activities include developing, launching and monitoring TDM programs for medium- to large- sized organizations. We promote a menu of options for commuters such as transit, carpooling, shuttle buses, vanpooling, telecommuting, cycling and walking. We also provide shared shuttle services that connect employees, tenants and customers from transit stations and carpool lots, directly to the workplace.
