NJ-Smart-Workplaces

New Jersey Smart Workplaces (NJSW) recognizes and honors employers who help reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality by providing commuter benefits to employees. Employers of all sizes are eligible to apply. Employers are recognized at one of four levels of achievement: bronze, silver, gold or platinum based upon the programs offered at the worksite. The program is a partnership of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Association and the state’s Transportation Management Associations (TMAs). Greater Mercer TMA is the program’s coordinator in Mercer and Ocean counties.

Applying is easy and chances are you already provide some of the things that qualify you for this designation. Take our short quiz and if you answer YES to any of the following questions, you might be eligible for the New Jersey Smart Workplaces award.

Maintain a relationship with your local TMA?

Promote carpooling, vanpooling, and public transit?

Provide bike parking?

Have an on­site point of contact for employee commute inquiries?
