Local Exchange News

Med City Time Swap (Formerly Time Trader) is an organized exchange network through which members earn Time Credits (TC) for time spent helping other members. One hour of service earns one TC. With TC, members can “buy” services they want or need. For example, if you give one hour of childcare, you can receive one hour of painting, accounting, transportation assistance, or a piano lesson, and the list goes on...

Everyone’s time and service are valued equally.

Give what you want; Get what you need!

Just a reminder to be courteous and try to respond to a member's request within 48 hours, even if it is to let them know you are unable to help them out at this time. And another tip, you are more likely to be contacted for an exchange if you add a service description.
