Hello Boston: Santa brought us (more) good press coverage and lots of new members

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 “alerts” and “advisories” will come from YOU…and are sent directly to your fellow commuters (on your line).
More info

  • Your should have received a “Welcome” mail…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-other…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 “growth spurt” in our membership…so there will be some growing pains I’m sure…but we’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 these…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.
