Bike Friendly Employer Program

Are You a Bike Friendly Employer?  

Do You Want To Be?

The Partnership TMA Can Help!

The PTMA provides free one-hour workshops to employers, suitable for all skill levels, at your workplace in order to encourage bike commuting.  In addition, we offer the incentive of a mini free bike tune up to all participants.   Employers could select one workshop or a series.

The workshop series would include:

1.  Commuting Basics – Law, traffic signals and signs, bike lanes, tracks and sidewalks, riding at night

2.  Sharing the Road Safely – Hand signals, turning, sharing the lane, changing lanes

3. Choosing the Right Gear – Bikes, helmets, lights, locks, accessories, cold and rain gear, carrying kids and cargo

4. Planning the Perfect Route – Local and regional resources, bicycles on public transportation with a demonstration with a SEPTA bus and where to park your bike

Complimentary Bike Friendly Audit

The PTMA, utilizing the checklist from the League of American Bicyclists, recommendations from Montgomery County and adjusted to meet any of the employers’ special needs, would visit the employer’s worksite and do a complimentary bike friendly audit.  After the audit is completed, the PTMA would provide the results and recommendations on how to improve bike commuting at the worksite.  

To encourage employers to provide for the basic needs of bike commuters, the PTMA has established a “Bike Friendly Employer Award” to be presented annually at the PTMA Annual Meeting.   As a reward, the PTMA will donate to the employer a “Fixation” bicycle fix it station!
