Now in its 5th year, our Pedaling on the Parkway fundraiser kicks into gear on Saturday, April 29 at 10:00am.  

This family-friendly community bike ride has both a 6-mile and 15-mile loop for beginner and experienced bikers along the scenic Route 202 Parkway between Montgomeryville and Doylestown.  Adding to this year's excitement is a new "pose and pedal" 2-mile scavenger hunt!  And, Pedaling on the Parkway always begins with FREE tune-ups from our friends at Bike and Sol of East Greenville.

Sponsorships are available.  Registration is $25 for adults and $10 for ages 10 and under and includes an event tee shirt and refreshments. Families of 4 can ride for $75 if one rider is age 10 or under.  Click Read More to download the reg form or call us at 215-997-9100.   

Pedaling on the Parkway is held rain or shine and begins at the Route 202/309 Park N Ride lot in Montgomeryville across from Buckman's Ski Shop.

12/19/2016 -- REMEMBER TO "BURNWISE" THIS WINTER

Did you know burning chemically treated or processed wood is hazardous to your health?  Or that smoke from as few as two family "burn barrels" can emit as much pollution as as a well-controlled 200-ton daily municipal incinerator?

Burnwise, a program of the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection and local partners, PA DEP and the Air Quality Partnership remind you to limit materials you burn this winter season.  In fact, the better option is always to recycle as much household material and yard waste as possible to keep acidic smoke and dioxins out of our air.  And, be sure to sign up for daily air quality forecasts at www.airqualitypartnership.org.

06/22/2016 -- BIKE SHARE PROGRAM ADDS NEW LOCATIONS

Ride On, our free bike share program, has added three new locations:

The Barndt Agency, Sumneytown

Generations of Indian Valley, Souderton

Lansdale Public Library

These join previous hubs at the Upper Perk YMCA in Pennsburg, the Upper Perk Library in Red Hill, the Indian Valley Library in Telford, Hatfield Borough Hall and the Peter Becker Community in Harleysville (PBC residents only).  

To use a bike, simply visit any location (except PBC) and show a photo ID, sign a waiver that you agree to wear a helmet and follow the rules of the road.  It's that easy!

There is NO COST to you and bikes can be used for work-related reasons or for leisure.  The bikes will soon be equipped with bells and baskets will be available for use at each location.  The Partnership TMA sells discounted bike helmets in several sizes for only $13.

Please contact the Mobility Hotline at 1.866.507.4857 or info@ptma-mc.org with any questions.

 

04/05/2016 -- DRIVERS NEEDED FOR NEW VOLUNTEER DRIVER PROGRAM

The Collaborative for Health and Human Services is currently accepting applications for its new Volunteer Drivers Club.  The program, designed by The Partnership TMA, will service residents who live in the Souderton, North Penn and Wissahickon school districts and need a one-time roundtrip ride to a medical appointment or grocery store.  

If you or someone you know has 1-2 hours a month to donate, please consider signing up as a volunteer driver to help seniors and others without any other form of transportation.  

For more information, please contact The Partnership TMA at 1-866-507-4857 or info@ptma-mc.org.
