The Middlesex 3 TMA has been created as an affiliated organization of the Middlesex 3 Coalition. The Coalition is a 501 (c) (6) Massachusetts non-profit corporation with community and business partners who share common goals of fostering economic development, job growth and retention, diversification of  the tax base and enhancement of quality of life in the region. The TMA region includes the participating communities of Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Chelmsford, Lowell, Tewksbury, Tyngsborough, and Westford Massachusetts. The TMA has formed for the purposes of:

  • Creating a community consciousness regarding transportation and the need to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality; 
  • Providing leadership in combining area resources to maximize mobility within and access to the communities; 
  • Coordinating a network of transportation resources to effectively move people;
  • Offering direct services to business partners that encourage employees to choose not to drive alone to work;
  • Enhancing the area’s economic vitality while minimizing the impact of development; and;
  • Making the most efficient use of nearby public transportation services. 

The TMA addresses a variety of needs including: traditional commuting from the suburbs into the Boston/Cambridge area, reverse commuting--from Boston/Cambridge to the Middlesex 3 area, and non-commuting trips between communities. For more information about the Middlesex 3 TMA please click here.

Funding for the TMA comes from its members and other sources.
