Offered by Smart Commute Metro North
Congestion stinks, and with nearly 6,000 people moving to Adams County every year, traffic is only going to get worse unless someone does something! That’s where Smart Commute comes in – Smart Commute is a nonprofit TMO focused solely on the north Denver metro, including Brighton and Adams County.
What is a TMO?
A TMO is a Transportation Management Organization, a nonprofit, public-private partnership made up of representatives from local jurisdictions, private business owners, developers, and residents who have made a commitment to advance multi–modal transportation solutions. There are seven TMOs in the Denver metro region, each associated with a particular travel corridor or geographic region.
Where does Smart Commute Serve?
Smart Commute focuses on the north Denver Metro – from Brighton in the east to Erie in the west, Longmont in the north to Commerce City in the south. Smart Commute is a frequent presence at many community fairs and events throughout the warmer months, including the Brighton BBQ. We’re eager to meet you! Be sure and introduce yourselves to us.
