Merrimack Valley TMA and NuRide - a Summary of Accomplishment
Since 2010, the Merrimack Valley TMA has partnered with NuRide, a ride-matching database to help our members find carpool and vanpool partners. Since 2011 (the year data first became available), we have been able to compile some pretty impressive statistics. The Merrimack Valley TMA boasts 84 active NuRiders who have collectively recorded 54,000 trips, reduced the miles on their cars (VMT) by 1.3 million, saved close to 60,000 gallons of gas and reduced parking spots by 10.8 per average week day.
