Anne Rugg, Transportation Management Association Manager
arugg [at] coastbus.org
What is your role at COAST?
I manage CommuteSMART Seacoast, a program that encourages commuters to take the bus, bicycle, walk, carpool or work from home. I do this primarily by running spring and winter commuter challenges.
What is your first memory of public transit?
Waiting for the bus in junior high and freezing because the fashion was mini-skirts and nylons!
What is something unique about you?
Five of the birdhouses my husband and I created were purchased for display by the Smithsonian Institute.
What is one thing you love about your career?
The people I have the great opportunity to meet and interact with, inside and outside of the office.
What is one thing everyone should know about COAST?
We provide a great service, especially given that NH gives us no state funding.
