About Us

Who we are

TMACC is non-profit that was established in 1992 by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.  The genesis of our organization is based upon Federal  Congestion Management and Air Quality (CMAQ) guidelines for Non-Attainment Areas.  The Delaware Valley region is such an area.  

TMACC’s charter is to serve as liaison between public sector transportation agencies and the private sector on transportation issues affecting the Chester County business community.  Chester County is the state’s fastest growing county.  We focus on Mobility Management and Sustainability through education, advocacy and special programs.   We work closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), Chester County Planning Commission and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC).

We not only provide public forums on key issues for our members, we also provide consulting services to develop mobility programs to meet their employees needs.  We are also retained by SEPTA and PennDOT to execute a variety of mobility alternative programs.

What we believe

Improved and Efficient Highways

Chester County’s highway infrastructure must be improved and maintained to ensure the safe and efficient transport of people, goods and services.

TMACC has been a strong and vocal advocate for road reconstruction projects in Chester County and the Delaware Valley region. 

Major road projects supported by TMACC include:

  • U.S. 202 highway reconstruction project in the Great Valley area of Malvern
  • U.S. 202 highway redesign project (West Chester to Painters Crossroads)
  • U.S. 30 Coatesville-Downingtown Bypass and Interchange improvements
  • U.S. 422 reconstruction project (North Coventry Township to Valley Forge)
  • PA 100 highway reconstruction (Exton to Lionville)
  • PA 41 corridor safety improvements in southern Chester County
  • Boot Road extension in Downingtown

Accessible and Efficient Public Transportation

Chester County’s bus and rail network must be enhanced and expanded to ensure that commuters have a reliable alternative to driving.

Not only is TMACC a strong advocate for public transit, it is also a provider.  For the past 10 years, TMACC has provided bus service in Chester County.  TMACC bus lines – SCCOOT and Coatesville LINK – connect residential communities to commercial and retail corridors where many residents work and shop.

Improving access to jobs is essential to the economic viability of Chester County.  Thousands of employers throughout Chester County rely on TMACC to provide public transportation for their employees to commute to work on a daily basis.

Federal and state subsidies for public transit have been reduced which threatens the future of public transportation in Chester County.  TMACC continues to strongly encourage federal, state and county governments to provide TMACC and other public transit agencies with stable and performance-driven funding annually.

Stable and Reliable Funding for Transportation

TMACC supports the efforts of the Pennsylvania Legislature to provide inflation sensitive, long-term funding stream to address the Pennsylvania’s transportation funding crisis. 

Pennsylvania needs an additional $1.7 billion a year in additional revenues to repair the state’s aging infrastructure and structurally-deficit bridges and to maintain and expand public transit. 

TMACC will continue to work with federal and state elected representatives, business and civic leaders to develop a solution to the state’s transportation funding crisis today and in the future.
