09/09/19 -- PTMA ANNOUNCES NEW COMMUTER OF THE MONTH DISTINCTION!

For nearly 18 years, Dennis Haggerty, Jr. (pictured) has biked the extensive network of Montgomery County trails to get to his job. 

As the current Director of Administration (and former Public Works Director) for Horsham Township, biking to work has its advantages.  Dennis said he is able to "get in a good workout while checking the trails for any hazards or areas of improvement".  This is no small feat in Horsham, which has one of the largest trail systems in the region. 

And, despite getting exercise, saving fuel costs, and avoiding traffic, Dennis said his favorite aspect of biking to work is "the excellent view from the 5-mile, 12-foot wide paved main trail.  Anytime you can access it or one of the connector trails, you will not be disappointed!" Find the nomination form here.

Congratulations to Dennis Haggerty, Jr. of Horsham Township, our September 2019 Commuter of the Month!   

08/02/2019 -- PA GRANTS NOW AVAILABLE TO SWITCH FROM DIESEL TO ALT-FUEL VEHICLES!

If you’re a business owner, government, or community organization in Pennsylvania and interested in cleaner transportation options, we have good news for you! Two more grant programs have opened to help you switch from older diesel engines to cleaner technologies. This makes a total of five funding programs currently open, with over $10 million available.

 

Older diesel engines generate over 25 percent of the oxides of nitrogen (NOx) pollution in Pennsylvania. Launched under the Wolf Administration, Driving PA Forward supports the permanent reduction of NOx emissions statewide. New engine technologies, such as electric, compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, and clean diesel, can significantly reduce pollutants from freight and delivery trucks, transit and school buses, and other mobile sources that rely on older diesel technology.

 

Funding comes from Pennsylvania’s share of a national settlement with Volkswagen Group of America for cheating on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions tests.
