On May 29, The Partnership TMA held its Annual Meeting to celebrate a year of accomplishments and to welcome its newest board members - all during a delicious buffet luncheon at the historic William Penn Inn. This year's keynote speaker was Matthew J. Edmond, AICP and Transportation Section Chief the Montgomery County Planning Commission who gave an overview of Montgomery County's many assets, the future growth of the region and how transportation will play a vital role in this process. At the meeting, The Partnership TMA also presented the following awards:
President's Award: Montgomery County Planning Commission
Community Award: Telford Borough
Special Recognition: State Senator Robert Mensch and Brandywine Realty Trust
And a SPECIAL THANKS to our Annual Meeting sponsors: McMahon Associates Inc., The Tomko Family, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, Friends of State Representative Kate Harper, Moyer Indoor / Outdoor, and the North Penn Water Authority.
In February, the VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn awarded The Partnership TMA with one of its 2015 Technology Mini-Grants for $2,500! PTMA will use the monies to purchase new iPads that can be used for hands-on travel training instruction for students with disabilities, senior citizens and other groups.
"This grant from the VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn will allow our travel-training instruction to evolve just as SEPTA's new payment fare technology makes an introduction into our service area. The iPads offer a great way for students to compute fares, use the customer service chat feature, watch important transit safety and etiquette videos and much more starting this spring," said PTMA Deputy Director Anthony Johnson.
The VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn invests in agencies that contribute to the well-being of greater North Penn area residents. For more on their exciting programs and services, please visit www.npvnafoundation.org.
On April 25, more than 25 riders participated in our second annual Pedaling on the Parkway! The family-friendly 6-mile loop or a more challenging 15-mile ride took place along the beautiful stretch of Route 202 from Montgomeryville to Doylestown. SEPTA brought one of its buses to the event to show the cyclists how easy it is to secure their bikes when riding public transit. And, Bike and Sol, a Montgomery County nonprofit that teaches children how to refurbish donated bikes was on hand to perform free tune-ups for the riders.
Pedaling on the Parkway is a fundraiser that benefits the PTMA's free bike share programs in Hatfield, Harleysville, the Upper Perk Valley and a new location for 2015! A special thanks to our sponsors: the Air Quality Partnership of Philadelphia; Borough of Hatfield; Borough of Lansdale; Brandywine Realty Trust; Central Bucks Bicycle Club; Mary L. West; McMahon Associates, Inc.; PennSuburban Chamber of Greater Montgomery County; State Representative Kate Harper; Univest Bank and Trust Co., and the Tomko family.
