Serving Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Norwood, & Westwood
At the Neponset Valley TMA, we develop and manage commuting solutions
for members in the towns of Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Norwood, and Westwood.

of cars on the road to alleviate traffic congestion and improve
air quality. The TMA works closely with its members to achieve
these goals by creating a community-consciousness regarding traffic,
transportation and related matters. In addition, the TMA represents
the transportation needs of its members at both a local and state
