  • Make an Impact this Earth Day April 2, 2014 -
  • This One is For the Dogs March 7, 2014 - There are a lot of obvious distractions while driving like phones, iPods, CDs, food, and drinks. However most people overlook that cute furry distraction that is present in the cars of 1 in 5 pet-owning Americans. Sure a floppy eared dog with his cute little head out the window is adorable, but also very dangerous for both the passengers and the dog himself. Having an unrestrained pet in the car can be a bigger distraction than a cell phone or ... More »

  • New York City by Four December 12, 2013 - The Big Apple during the Holiday Season is truly magical - especially through the eyes of  a child experiencing it for the very first time. Recently, I took a day off from keeping Middlesex moving (no worries, Middlesex kept moving because of our terrific staff) and I practiced what I preached. Together with my husband and two absolutely delighted children, we drove to our local train station.  And because we were commuting with children, we raced to grab the NJ TRANSIT ... More »

  • Distracted Driving – The Basics October 23, 2013 - Distracted Driving is any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from their primary task of driving.  Types of distractions besides texting and using a cell phone include: eating and drinking, grooming, reading including maps, adjusting a radio or CD player. But because text messaging requires visual, manual and cognitive attention, it is by far the most alarming distraction.  Cell phone use may not be the only distraction for drivers, but when you combine the risk with the frequency ...

  • Join INN October 16, 2013 - In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, one thing was clear. Information is key and getting it fast is essential. With widespread power outages, many of our commuters depended on their smart phone to get information during and after the storm. Armed with this knowledge, KMM has completely re-invented the ETN to give subscribers a greater degree of information delivered right to their smart phones. KMM is proud to introduce Middlesex County Information Notification Network - be in ... More »

  • Keep Your Eyes Up! October 2, 2013 - What happens when Old Bridge High School 10th graders navigate an obstacle course containing a stop sign, traffic circle, pedestrians in a crosswalk and a traffic light, all while performing a math problem on a calculator? KMM joined Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in conducting a Distracted Driver/Pedestrian Program and the results were not surprising!   Of the 200 students who walked the course, only a handful received a perfect score.  When evaluated after the program, the students never realized the mistakes they ...

  • The Art of Bike Racks September 25, 2013 - Some have said that Da Vinci’s sketch books contain drawings of a bicycle.  This may or may not be true but we do know that a bicycle without pedal appeared in 1817.  It enjoyed limited popularity.  In 1870, the first all metal High Wheel Bicycle was introduced and named.   Bicycles have evolved considerably since those days and so have bike racks. Right from the start, trees, signs, benches, and just about any other immobile objects have been used to secure ... More »

  • Pay Attention September 12, 2013 - I turned into the street and moved into the right lane.  The light was in my favor and I signaled my intention to turn right.  But, I slammed on my brakes as I made the turn because a bicyclist who ran his red light almost ran into me.  I sat there fuming as he pedaled away totally oblivious to the accident he almost caused. But there’s more.  A few blocks later, I put on my left turn blinker.  The driver ... More »
  • The Shore Attitude – Beyond Summer August 28, 2013 - The bright sun streaming through your window wakes you up - it's going to be another hot day on the Jersey Shore. You and your family put on bathing suits, t-shirts and sandals, and walk a couple blocks to that breakfast place for pancakes. Later, you load up the cart for the three block walk to the beach while your eldest rides off on a cruiser bike to meet her friends on the boardwalk. On the walk, you wave hello ... More »
  • Ferry-ly We Go Along – Changes in Latitudes August 21, 2013 - When I was a kid, my Dad would take us for a ride on the Staten Island Ferry.  At 5 cents per passenger, it was a true bargain for a family of six.  We’d ride to Manhattan and turn around and come back.  Sometimes, he’d take the car on the ferry and we’d drive in the City.  Great times! That was the start of my affection for ferries.  Here are a few others I’ve ridden. Cape May, NJ - Lewes, ... More »
  • Planes, Ships and Automobiles – Changes in Latitude August 14, 2013 - My family has taken many vacations over the years, most of which involved long car rides to our destination.  Most of our time was spent reading road maps, sitting in traffic, searching for parking and waiting in rental car lines.  However, one year we decided to try something new.  We sailed on a Disney Cruise and left the ship responsible to take us to our destinations.  We would relax aboard the great big ship and be pedestrians for the week (and shed the pounds we ...

  • The Emerald Isle – Changes In Latitude August 7, 2013 - Polite and friendly people. Warm and delicious brown bread.  Green for more than the eye can see.  Guinness on tap everywhere and anywhere you go. Where are we? Ireland, of course - the Emerald Isle. As the plane descended from the clouds, the morning was bright and beautiful.  And at the expense of sounding cliché, outside our window the greenest fields and lush rolling hills greeted us. This was my first trip oversees in many years and the first in ... More »
  • Cruising Up the Nile in 1987 – Changes in Latitude July 31, 2013 - Most of Cairo was asleep as my cab pulled away from the hotel.  Soon the streets and sidewalks would bustle with people, cars, buses, bikes, and mopeds.  For now, in the dusty morning light, it was my cab and a donkey cart.  The cart had no driver.  Yet, the donkey trotted with confidence and purpose, crossing the street carefully as two men slept in the back.  I don’t know where the donkey was going but I was on my way ...

  • Mind the Gap – Changes in Latitude July 24, 2013 - As a mother of two active school-age children living in the New Jersey suburbs, our family vehicle is very much a part of our family.  We drive almost everywhere with children and gear and friends in tow.  Add office life and social commitments - it's safe to say our lives as professionals and parents and chauffeurs are full.  So you can imagine my absolute delight and glee when my husband and I left the car and our children in the hands of their ...

  • A Transportation Planner Visits Barcelona – Changes in Latitude July 17, 2013 - "I, therefore, openly repaired to Barcelona, that repository of politeness...that agreeable scene of unshaken friendship, unparalleled both in beauty and situation!” Don Quixote It was a beautiful and sunny day as my wife, daughters, and I left our cruise ship to enjoy the beauty of Barcelona.  No tour bus for us.  We wanted to experience this Mediterranean jewel on foot. We weren’t the only ones. Everywhere, the streets were filled with tourists, students, businessmen and women, even the elderly walking, ... More »
  • Up, Up and Away – Changes in Latitude July 10, 2013 - It snowed overnight, but there was hope the white trim on the Red Rock Mountains would melt by the time the birds awoke with their early morning chirping.  In Sedona, Arizona, on an open field, a hot air balloon was waiting. As my wife an I arrived to the remote location, we could see the crew inflate our chariot - the majestic balloon that would carry us on this sunrise odyssey over the valley of Central Arizona.   It took a bit of effort (as did our newly acquainted companions) to climb into ...

  • Changing Latitudes – Jersey Shore July 3, 2013 - I love my passport.   I love the stamps from far away locations gracing each page (although it irks me when customs randomly selects a page to stamp – seriously, why can’t they just stamp in order!) and the tiny stickers placed on the back of the book.  But most often, these trips, while great fun, involve sightseeing, jet lag and sore feet.  So as much as I love my passport, I also love Route 539 which is my passport and passageway ...

  • A Brief History of Carpooling June 3, 2013 - While KMM’s history with ridesharing goes back 25 years, ridesharing can be traced to the early 20th century. The Model T lured commuters off streetcars and into private vehicles. The start of WWI and the 1914 recession inspired entrepreneurs to offset the costs of car ownership by picking up streetcar passengers and transporting them to their destinations for a “jitney,” the 5-cent cost of a streetcar fare. During WWII, early attempts to promote “car clubbing” were largely ignored, in part ... More »
  • The Heat is On! May 31, 2013 - It's only May and the heat is on!  The quality of the air we breathe can have huge implications on our health and well being. Ground level ozone is most dangerous during the hot summer months when strong sunlight and hot weather combine and react with ground level pollution. According to the American Lung Association, 58% of the US population live in areas with unhealthy ozone levels. Unhealthy ozone levels can make it difficult to breath deeply and damage the ... More »
  • Share the Road, Save a Life! May 30, 2013 - The warm weather has finally arrived and that means more people are leaving their cars behind and opting for pedal power to get to their destinations. Not only is this a fun way to explore the sights and sounds of the GardenState, but it also incorporates physical fitness into your day. And for many NJ residents, bicycling is the only form of transportation to get to and from work. If you’re an avid bike rider, you’re probably aware of the ... More »
  • NJ Summer Shore – Get Ready, It’s Almost Here! May 16, 2013 - For many New Jersey residents, driving down the shore is part of their very summer being.  It's as natural as waking up and brushing their teeth.  This year, more than ever, returning to the Jersey Shore is a symbol of triumph and strength after suffering devastation at the hands of Super Storm Sandy. In less than 10 days, the Jersey Shore will officially open its beaches on Memorial Day Weekend and kick off the 2013 Summer season.  Along with the smiles and ... More »

Here are a few things to keep in mind. Know where to go Take some time to map out your route before you start. The shortest route tends to be the busiest - going a little bit out of the way can lead you to quiet parallel streets for a more enjoyable ride. Other cyclists prefer the ... More »
  • Grab Your Helmets! April 24, 2013 - Bicycling to work not only benefits our environment, but our personal health as well.  Dependence on the automobile harms our planet and can create unnecessary stress in our lives.  Choosing an alternative form of transportation,  like the bicycle, can help to improve pollution, traffic congestion, and safety concerns. It even saves you money! Bike to Work Week is an international event that encourages commuters to ride their bike to work at least once during the week.  The event ultimately raises awareness about ... More »

  • Leave Handicapped Parking Spaces for Those with Handicaps March 19, 2013 - In the last year of her life, my Mom was slowed by age and illness.  Mobility issues forced her to use a walker to get around.  Mom traded in her driver’s licenses for a Handicapped placard which she could transfer to any vehicle in which she was a passenger.  She knew where the handicapped spaces were located at the places she frequented.  It irked her to discover vehicles without special placards or license plates parked in them.    She didn’t like ...

  • Let us Come to You This Spring February 27, 2013 - No two companies are alike.  Employee make-up, company goals and geographic locations are just some of the markers that define a company.  At KMM, we understand this reality.  In fact, our approach in assisting companies with commuter benefits makes this a priority. Interested in learning more about KMM’s programs? Wondering if a fellow employee commutes along the same road? Interested in learning about transit availability near your job?

In addition, by walking and biking to school children learn an environmentally friendly alternative to driving. In ... More »
  • Remove Your Car From the Street… It Could Save Your Life February 7, 2013 - Awhile back, I was a member of the governing body in my town.  From time to time, constituents would call about any number of issues.  Calls piled high immediately after a snow storm.  Mostly, residents complained that they had been ticketed for leaving their cars on the street. I would explain that our town, like many communities, requires vehicles to be removed from the street when snow fall reaches a certain level. For some towns, it’s two inches.  In others, ... More »
  • Having “the Talk.” Handing over the Keys. January 30, 2013 - The other day, I was on the phone with my friend Anna when she screamed, “Stop, Jim, stop!  There’s a stop sign!  Phew! That was close.”  She was a passenger in the car with her 80 something husband who refuses to relinquish the car keys.  Most of the time, she cajoles him into letting her drive but sometimes, especially for trips around town, Jim insists on getting behind the wheel. Anna knows Jim should not be driving.  She’s tried hiding ... More »

  • How do YOU get to Work? January 23, 2013 - Regardless of where you live in New Jersey, there is a TMA that can help YOU get to work.  What is a TMA?  Don't worry.  You are not alone in asking this question. For starters, KMM is a TMA (yes, that is a mouth-full of acrynoms).  In a nutshell, our office helps commuters find ways to get work and communicate all things related to commuting. Officially, TMA's are transportation management associations that serve specific counties throughout the state of New Jersey that work with ... More »
  • Ignore the “Cat”-erwauling – Restrain Your Pets in the Car January 17, 2013 - Last week, I was stopped at a traffic light when I was rear ended.  The impact was strong enough to knock a package to floor and cause $1000 worth of damage. Fortunately, there were no injuries.  It did scare the living daylights out of my 18-year-old cat who was secured in his carrier with a seat belt. We were coming back from a vet visit.  Cognac complains about vet visits but he really doesn’t mind being there because the staff dotes on him ... More »
  • Smarten up your Commute to Work January 16, 2013 - Cell phones are no longer used exclusively for talking. Chances are you or someone you know has bought into the smartphone technology. While there is a lot of talk (including here at KMM) about distracted driving due to smart phone usage, developers have now created apps (applications) that can help you have a safer commute.  From apps that measure your distance between cars, read your email, or inform you of approaching traffic, there’s an app for that! Don’t drive to ... More »
  • What’s So Special About Middlesex County? January 10, 2013 - Nearly six years ago I stumbled into a meeting with the Director of the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce (MCRCC).  The people at the meeting were discussing creating a Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (CVB) within the chamber in order to promote tourism in MiddlesexCounty.  Although I thought tourism in this county was somewhat laughable, they were serving sandwiches so I decided to stay for the meeting. Since that inaugural meeting, we have seen this idea develop and grow into a high ... More »
  • Baby It’s Cold Outside – But Not for Biking! January 4, 2013 - Just because it's cold out doesn't mean you have to stop biking (to work, to school, to the store). A little extra preparation can make your winter cycling experience comfortable, safe, and fun. Plus, cycling through the winter is a great way to keep your New Year's health and fitness resolutions! In dry weather you can cycle in your ordinary clothes, with a couple considerations for the cold: warm, wind-resistant gloves and a perhaps a thin cap that covers your ... More »
  • Be Prepared – And its New Meaning January 2, 2013 - Many of us thought that if we had batteries stocked, bottled water stored and our smart phones handy, we were prepared.  Unfortunately, we were proven wrong last October as Hurricane Sandy crashed upon our shores.  Since then, our approach to preparedness has changed.  Our emergency kits have evolved and our attention to warnings has heightened. With the New Year upon us, we at KMM thought to share with you what is in our emergency kit.  Some of these items have ... More »
  • Don’t Clown Around December 18, 2012 - Earlier this year, I watched my youngest board the big yellow bus.  He kissed me goodbye without any reservation, hugged me tight and gleefully boarded the bus.  Having seen his older sibling board the bus each day for three years, this day was long coming for him.   As the bus pulled away, I waved and wiped a tear away. Fast forward to present day.  While kisses and hugs are still shared, the novelty of the bus has worn off and ... More »
  • Feisty Granny Gives Impatient Driver His Comeuppance December 13, 2012 - I am sure by now, you have seen the latest viral video, but let me share with you - my Mother would have loved the lady in this video! Just case you haven't seen the video.... “Good for her,” Mom would have said, adding, “old age ain’t for sissies, you know.” Of course, she stole that line from the late radio and television personality Art Linkletter.  But, he probably borrowed from Bette Davis or H.L. Mencken.  Whoever said it, was ... More »
