Call 866-507-4857 (toll-free)

Information about the range of current, local transportation options is not easily accessible. Our helpline provides a free service to individuals and employers who want to learn more about transportation options.

Lack of access to transportation is a barrier to employment and we work with employers to develop Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies, so their employees can get to work on time.

“Connecting with the Partnership TMA was truly a blessing for our company. We were at a loss on where to start and who to contact for options that our company could use for our transportation needs. We reached out and not only were they very acknowledgable and friendly, they truly went out of their way to connect us with the professionals we needed to partner with to solve our transportation challenges.”

Travel Training

Our staff provide in-person and virtual training on utilizing public transit to support young adults with autism so they can access employment, services, and learn to travel independently.

Topics include:

  • Personal safety
  • Trip preparation
  • Understanding transit schedules
  • Contingency planning
  • ‘Live-ride’ on transit

Training can be customized to meet group needs and single presentations can be delivered in-person or virtually.

"Travel training is a wonderful program in which our students have gained such a great skill set to add their toolbox of knowledge. It is so important for our students to learn to be independent in the community along with being aware of the dangers that surround them. Using classroom based scenarios, videos and actual practice in the community, this program has given our students the skills to be more confident when crossing the street, riding a bus and recognizing and responding to danger. Not only are the students learning community- based skills, but this program incorporates lessons on reading, counting money and social skills."

Air Quality Tip

Approximately 20 days each year, air quality in Montco does not meet EPA health standards. Everyone can take action to reduce air pollution and improve air quality.

Maintaining your vehicle, commuting smarter, saving energy at work & home, and employers joining the Air Quality Partnership through the Partnership TMA of Montgomery County are simple steps to improve air quality.

Maintain Your Vehicle


Refuel your vehicle at the end of the day. Ozone levels are usually highest in mid-to-late afternoon.

Don’t Idle


Don’t let your vehicle run when you’re not driving. Idling wastes gas and pollutes the air.
