If you joined after reading about Clever Commute in Boston Now or on WBZ-TV…then all we’d like to share is the fact that there is still a lot of room to grow. Most of the NY-area Clever Commute communities are much bigger…and are functioning very well. So, please ask friends and colleagues to sign-up
But for those that found us via the Boston Globe coverage…or from a friend, here is a “Welcome” to you.
The one-liner here is that you have joined a community that gives you the ability to help (and receive help from) your fellow passengers. All of the â€œalertsâ€ and â€œadvisoriesâ€ will come from YOUâ€¦and are sent directly to your fellow commuters (on your line).
- Your should have received a â€œWelcomeâ€ mailâ€¦and the only thing you really need to note is the one e-mail address you need for the train line your ride
(You can always reach CleverCommute staff via the website)
- As thousands of NY-area commuters know, this service is all about people-helping-each-otherâ€¦and the other people on your list are your neighbors. Please make your messages to the group (1) constructive and (2) actionable.
The recent media attention has indeed caused a â€œgrowth spurtâ€ in our membershipâ€¦so there will be some growing pains Iâ€™m sureâ€¦but weâ€™ll get through it together.
- Ask friends and fellow commuters to sign up. Speaking from my own experience, each community can (and should) grow much larger than they are now
- Follow this link to a few bullet points based on our experiences in the NY area. Maybe the Boston-area dynamics will be reason to tweak theseâ€¦but I think this is a good starting point
Thanks to all in Boston-area for making this happen. Let’s hope for a smooth commute.
