10/27/2017 -- RECENT OPEN HOUSES SHOW LOCAL ROAD IMPROVEMENTS COMING

PennDOT recently held Open Houses for both the Route 309 Connector - Phase 2 project slated for Franconia and Hatfield Twps and Old Forty Foot Road bridge replacement in Towamencin Twp.

The Route 309 Connector is a much-anticipated diverter of traffic from residential roads to a more direct path to the PA Turnpike and Sumneytown Pike.  Design work is underway with construction to begin in 2020.  Click READ MORE to see project specifics.

In scenic Evansburg State Park, the current Old Forty Foot Road bridge has seen better days.  But a $2M replacement will bring wider shoulders for pedestrians and bikers, attractive stonework designs, and anti-erosion supports to protect its base from the swift-flowing Skippack Creek. Construction starts in mid-2018 and will last for less than one year.

08/18/2017 -- GIDEON J. GOOD MEMORIAL BIKE IS DEDICATED IN TELFORD

Pedaling It Forward, a program to honor the memory of a loved one or to spotlight a business or service, made its first unveiling today at the Indian Valley Public Library in Telford. 

The Gideon J. Good Memorial Bike is a loving tribute from a local family to his memory.  His parents, grandparents, great-grandmother and a crowd of family friends and well-wishers gathered under overcast skies to celebrate his life and unveil a shiny new red cruiser in his memory.

Baskets, bells, helmets, and bike racks may also be dedicated under the program for use in any of our free bike share locations.  For more information on Pedaling It Forward, please call us at 215-997-9100. 

07/10/2017 -- PTMA AWARDED $7,500 GRANT FOR TRAVEL-TRAINING WORK WITH STUDENTS

This month, the Child Development Foundation awarded a $7,500 grant to The Partnership TMA for our continued work teaching Montgomery County students on the spectrum how to ride SEPTA.  

In the award-winning program, classes learn how to read a schedule, deal with strange situations, walk safely around transit hubs and more before taking a field trip on SEPTA the final week to practice the lessons in the real world.  Staff are certified through Easter Seals and conduct the travel-training program with middle-and-high-schoolers in Abington, Cheltenham, Hatboro-Horsham, Jenkintown, North Penn, Pottstown, Springfield, Upper Merion and Wissahickon schools among others.

To learn more about individual or group travel training, please contact the Mobility Hotline at 1-866-507-4857.
