Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC), is a public transportation agency designated by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to oversee transportation needs of Chester County, Pennsylvania. According to the website, the organization provides services to facilitate car pools, van pools, and bus shuttles. The organization works closely with other organizations such as SEPTA, Krapf Transit and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.[1]

Bus service

Regular mass transit services under the name "ChescoBus" include:

  • SCCOOT - bus service operated by Krapf Transit and managed by TMACC that runs Monday through Friday between West Chester and Oxford.[2]
  • Coatesville Link - bus service operated by Krapf Transit and managed by TMACC that runs Monday through Saturday between Coatesville and Parkesburg.[3]
  • Krapf "A" - bus service operated and managed by Krapf Transit that runs Monday through Sunday linking Coateville with West Chester and Exton. The route currently handles 1,200 daily passengers on an old SEPTA 120 bus route.[4][5]
  • Evening Link - bus service operated by Krapf Transit and managed by TMACC that runs on evenings Monday through Saturday between Coatesville and Exton.[6]
  • RideECO - a commuter solution customized for employees of organizations[7]

History

The agency was created in May 1992 as the Chester Valley TMA, with 14 founding members. In June 1995, the name was changed to TMACC to better attract members from across the county.[8] In 2015, TMACC rebranded their buses to be green color and adopted the name "ChescoBus" for their bus routes; TMACC also installed new bus stop signs.[9][10] This was part of a move to attract riders to the routes, which serve portions of Chester County where mass transit is limited.[10] In 2015, Saturday service was restored to the agency's SCCOOT and Coatesville Link services.[11] Saturday service on SCCOOT was later dropped.
