Transportation Management Associations(TMA's) or Organizations (TMO's)

Transportation Management Associations (TMA) are created solely as the organization responsible for the implementation of transportation demand management (TDM) programs and services in a community.

In the 1980s, TMA began to emerge as public-private partnerships designed to address traffic congestion and air-quality problems in communities throughout the Unites States. More than 125 TMA operate today throughout the United States, more of 10 of which are in Colorado.

The appeal of a TMA lies in multiple organizations and individuals banding together to address and accomplish more than any one government agency, employer, developer or resident could alone. The need for the TMA stems from the realization that each group has a great influence on transportation and air quality, and each group has important contributions to improving mobility and air quality.

The geographic scope of a TMA varies with each organization. Across the nation, one-third of all TMA offer services regionwide and one-fifth serve as a central business district. The remainder serve suburban business parks, residential areas, transportation corridors and tourist venues.

TMA services also vary by organization. The most common services are rideshare promotions and member advocacy.
