PTMA-MC Updates

09/12/2016 -- THE RIDE IS ON US! NEW PROMO WITH UBER ANNOUNCED

UBER, the on-demand 24/7 ridesharing service has arrived in Montgomery County!  The popular service can take you to work, stores, medical appointments and social engagements with times that fit your busy schedule.

You can schedule your ride by downloading the UBER app or visiting either www.uber.com/app or get.uber.com/go/PTMA.

08/24/2016 -- PTMA WRAPS BUSY SUMMER SEASON WITH LAUNCH OF THREE EXCITING NEW PROGRAMS!

Who says the summer is a slow time of year?

This month, The Partnership TMA has started three new programs: the Neighborhood Pace Car Program, Pedaling It Forward, and the Travel-Training Scholarship Fund.  Here's how each one works:

Neighborhood Pace Car Program - Our neighborhoods are no place for speeders.  By pledging to become a Neighborhood Pace Car, you will receive an attractive yellow Pace Car magnet to affix to the back of your car.  It will serve as a reminder to those behind you to obey the speed limit, watch for bikers and pedestrians, and to slow down in school zones.  As a result, you are "setting the pace" for safer driving habits in Montgomery County!

Pedaling It Forward - As our free bike share program expands throughout the County, there is now an option to purchase a new bike, bell, basket or air pump for a location of your choice!  It's a great way to honor the memory of a loved one or to show your support for a clean mode of transportation that is growing in popularity and making our neighborhoods much more liveable.

Travel-Training Scholarship Fund - The Partnership TMA works with schools throughout the area to ensure students on the Autism spectrum learn to ride SEPTA and other forms of public transportation safely and independently.  The new Scholarship Fund awards one round-trip fare and a meal stipend to a student who shows remarkable aptitude in the program and demonstrates financial need.

For more information on any of these exciting new programs, please contact The Partnership TMA at 215-997-9100 or info@ptma-mc.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.
