Commuter Services

The Anoka County Transportation Management Organization (TMO) helps local employers and commuters explore different choices such as carpooling, vanpooling, telecommuting, transit, biking, walking, or flexible work hours. It is our goal to help make commuting easier, healthier, and more enjoyable.

In addition, the Anoka County TMO serves as a community resource providing information such as road construction detours and project timelines to help reduce traffic congestion around the areas impacted by construction.
