Tired of driving to work, dealing with congestion and paying for parking? Try another way! Beginning April 1-June 30, you can participate in the Switch My Trip campaign, sponsored by Metro Transit and the region’s Transportation Management Organizations.

It’s simple: Switch out a trip you’d normally take by driving solo and instead take a bus or train, carpool, bike, walk or telework. Just one trip, that's it!  Not sure about switching up your commute? Try it for another trip - use transit to run errands, carpool to an event, walk your kids to school - any solo trip you replace makes you eligible to participate.

Make a plan now to do your part and make the switch. Registration begins April 1! Go to SwitchMyTrip.org to learn more about the campaign and how to sign up.

Mission: Commute Solutions is dedicated to achieving reductions in traffic congestion, improving mobility and air quality, and educating employers and their employees about transportation options.

Who we are: Commute Solutions was established in 2004 as the Anoka County Transportation Management Organization (TMO). A TMO works to reduce traffic congestion by promoting sustainable transportation options. There are four TMOs serving the Twin Cities region including: Anoka County Commute Solutions (all of Anoka County), Commuter Services (494 Corridor - Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina, Minnetonka, Richfield), Commuter Connection (downton Minneapolis), and Smart Trips (all of St. Paul). Metro Transit serves the remaining areas in the seven county Twin Cities metropolitan area. 

What we do:
  • Stimulate the development and implementation of sustainable commute options programs with employers and residents.
  • Develop, promote and implement employee and residential commute options that reduce traffic congestion, reduce carbon emissions, and improve air quality.
  • Foster relationships with a broad range of employer and community groups.
  • Shape the development of infrastructure to improve mobility to, and within, Anoka County.
Funding: Commute Solutions is funded with a federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) grant, administered by the Metropolitan Council. Anoka County provides a 20 percent local match.
