One of the largest deliverables for the NFRMPO’s Mobility Coordination Program is the Coordinated Public Transit/Human Service Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan). Throughout late 2016 and into 2017, NFRMPO staff will be undertaking an update to the current 2013 Coordinated Plan, which is available for download here:
Chapter 1 – Introduction
Chapter 2 – Socio-Economic Characteristics
Chapter 3 – Public Transit and Human Service Programs
Chapter 4 – Local and State Issues
Chapter 5 – Planning Issues for Federal Transit Administration Programs
Chapter 6 – Goals and Strategies
The Coordinated Plan brings together representatives from human service agencies and transit agencies to set strategies, goals, and objectives for the two Mobility Committees over the next four years. Human service agencies provide transportation to recognized transportation-disadvantaged groups, including seniors, individuals with disabilities, and persons with limited means. Bringing groups who serve these populations together with the transit agencies allows for each agency to better serve those in need.
SAFETEA-LU and subsequent transportation legislation requires Coordinated Plans to:
- identify the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes;
- provide strategies for meeting those needs; and
- prioritize transportation services for funding and implementation.
The kickoff event for the 2017 Coordinated Plan was held October 19, 2016 in Windsor. Meeting notes and presentation are available for download:
