PEOPLE AND CULTURE – JOINED ABC TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION (TMA)


PROJECT STORY

Meister Consultants Group; 98 North Washington Street

Meister Consulting Group (MCG) joined the ABC Transportation Management Association (TMA) in 2012. The TMA program provides a guaranteed ride home service which is very useful to MCG since 90% of our employees commute via public transportation, walking or biking. In addition, the TMA provides a workout to work program as a way to recognize employees who bike, run, walk or rollerblade to work. MCG also benefits from the corporate Zipcar membership discount and employees frequently use Zipcars for business travel.
