The TMA Council is a volunteer collaboration of Transportation Management Association / Organization (TMA/O) professionals who seek to inspire best practices and shared knowledge among similar organizations. The Council addresses and shares information related to TMA/Os, including public-private partnerships, program evaluation, marketing best practices, employer outreach, and the broad range of TDM services to reduce congestion and improve air quality.
The Council contributes information to ACT’s journal TDM Review, sponsors periodic conference calls, and holds meetings and special sessions during the ACT International Conference. The biennial TMA Summit has focused upon specific issues for TMAs. In addition, the TMA Council helped develop the TMA Handbook, an ACT publication.
