Transportation Management Associations Fact Sheet
What is a TMA?
Transportation management associations (TMAs) represent a voluntary association of public and private organizations joined to cooperatively provide transportation-enhancing programs in a given area. They provide assistance to employers in establishing commute options programs such as commuter incentives, public education and other benefits specific to those who live or work in the activity centers in which they operate. The TMAs partner with The Clean Air Campaign to facilitate these services under the umbrella of Georgia Commute Options.
