The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of transportation management associations (TMAs) as institutional arrangements for implementing travel demand management (TDM) strategies at large urban and suburban employment activity centers in the United States. Over 110 TMAs were identified in this analysis and a detailed 12-page evaluation survey was mailed to all of the 110 TMAs identified. This paper provides an overview of the research findings and conclusions arising from this national evaluation study. The survey included information on TMA initiation, leadership, corporate membership, budgeting and finance, goals and objectives, products and services, performance monitoring and evaluation, and short term implementation priorities, These aspects of the TMA development are discussed in the paper.
