Cindy Frene founded TransAction Associates Inc. in 1990,which is a transportation consulting firm focusing on commuter and environmental compliance programs. The company, which operates nationally, officially spun off a shuttle division in 1995 in order to provide high-quality transportation to various companies, institutions, municipalities, and the Commonwealth. This shuttle division now operates a fleet of 42 vans and buses. Cindy also started and/or managed seven non-profit Transportation Management Associations including the Neponset Valley TMA, which manages National RTAP.
Cindy has diverse marketing, management, patent/trademark, and program development experience, as well as a proven ability to acquire and maintain the confidence of customers, employees, and senior management. Through her work at TransAction, Cindy designed and managed the national award-winning Massachusetts Access to Jobs Initiative, which was the transportation component of the state's welfare reform. As such, she understands and has the working knowledge of the distinct differences of operating transportation programs in urban, suburban, and rural areas. In order to eliminate transportation as a barrier to work for people transitioning into the workforce, she developed and put in place a variety of transportation programs and services. Through her management of the Neponset Valley TMA, she became the Principal-in-Charge for National RTAP in 2008 for the Federal Transit Administration, serving rural transit operators and Native American tribes nationally.
TransAction Associates is a nationally certified Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) through the Small Business Administration and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certified by the Massachusetts Supplier Diversity Office. For the past three years, the Boston Business Journal named TransAction as one of the Top 100 Women Led Businesses in Massachusetts.
