Transportation Management Associations (TMAs) work with employers, local government, schools, community organizations and the general public to encourage and create alternatives to driving alone for commuting and other trips. They also educate the public about the importance of air quality, promote traffic safety through public outreach and planning, and improve transportation options for seniors, low-income employees, and disabled people. The map below shows the TMA in your area and provides contact information.
In addition to statewide TMA pass-through program grants administered by the NJTPA, TMAs are supported by grants from NJ TRANSIT, the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety, and private grants.

About Transportation Management Associations
Transportation Management Associations (TMAs) are private, non-profit organizations established to work with employers and governments to help provide effective and efficient commuting and other transportation options. The TMA Council of NJ (TMAC NJ) is comprised of the Executive Directors of New Jersey's Transportation Management Associations.
TMA activities that serve to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution include promoting and supporting commuter vanpools and carpools; working with employers to enact flex-time, telecommuting and compressed work initiatives; managing shuttle services; and promoting walking and bicycling. The TMAs provide information on available public transit and other local transportation services. They also play an important role in construction mitigation and emergencies, providing timely information about road and transit conditions and alternative modes of travel. Since July 2017, the TMAs have been assisting the NJTPA in conducting Street Smart NJ pedestrian safety campaigns. They also play an important role in planning for and improving Human Services Transportation (transportation for seniors, low-income workers, veterans, and people with disabilities).
Eight TMAs operate in the state of New Jersey. Seven TMAs operate in the NJTPA region: EZ Ride (formerly Meadowlink), goHunterdon, Greater Mercer TMA, Hudson TMA, Keep Middlesex Moving (KMM), RideWise, and Avenues in Motion (formerly TransOptions). Greater Mercer TMA covers areas in both the NJTPA and Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) regions and Cross County Connection TMA serves areas in the DVRPC and South Jersey Transportation Planning Authority regions.
The NJTPA oversees the development of annual work programs and coordinates activities among the TMAs, the NJTPA subregions, NJ TRANSIT, NJDOT, southern NJ MPOs and other partners in regional mobility. This arrangement is intended to increase the level of coordination and cooperation between state and regional priorities and TMA activities in areas such as data collection, outreach, shuttle services and the development and implementation of each MPO's long range transportation plan.
