Who we are
Ride Local™ Massachusetts highlights the professional services of local taxi and limousine companies in our Commonwealth. Powered by The Transportation Alliance, this campaign aims to connect you to your next local ride. Similar to “Shop Local” and “Eat Local” campaigns, Ride Local™ Massachusetts encourages you to support our Bay State businesses. Find your next local ride here by plugging in your city or town!
With a rapidly changing landscape due to technology advances, the economy, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to invest in and support our local businesses. Many local taxi and livery companies are family businesses that have been serving our communities for decades. In the age of conscientious consumption, now is a chance to put our money where our mouth is and support these Massachusetts businesses.
Ride Local™ Massachusetts is also a professional development resource for local transportation companies. We offer a number of helpful products–newsletters for transportation management, professional tips for drivers, webinars, and more–all free for any professional for-hire passenger transportation company in Massachusetts.
The Transportation Alliance
Established in 1917, The Transportation Alliance is a non-profit trade association of and for the private passenger transportation industry. Our extensive membership spans the globe and includes taxicab companies, executive sedan and limousine services, airport shuttle fleets, nonemergency medical transportation companies, and paratransit services.
Our mission remains the same today as it was at our conception: to provide our membership with a network of programs, services and support that will enhance their ability to effectively and profitably serve local public transportation needs. That’s why we are incredibly excited to launch our Ride Local™ Massachusetts campaign. This campaign, thanks to a generous grant from MassDevelopment, aims to bring awareness and support to the many people that make up Massachusetts’s diverse for-hire transportation industry. TTA remains an active partner in supporting our Massachusetts members and connecting drivers to the resources that they need to succeed.
