Check out the progress on our Coordinated Plan update!
The NFRMPO Mobility Coordination Program, RideNoCo, brings together human service agencies, transit agencies, community members, and staff from the NFRMPO to ensure residents of the region have mobility and access. The Mobility Coordination Program reports to two committees: the Larimer County Mobility Committee and the Weld County Mobility Committee. NFRMPO staff also assists with the Mobility and Access Priority Group of the Partnership for Age-Friendly Communities in Larimer County.
COVID Vaccine Transportation
The NFRMPO has implemented core components of its One Call/One Click Center Project to support county, regional, and federal efforts to remove barriers to accessing COVID vaccines by connecting individuals in need of transportation with providers able to serve them across Larimer and Weld counties. Through partnerships with the Larimer County Office on Aging and the Weld County Area Agency on Aging, individuals over the age of 60 and/or over the age of 18 with a disability should not have to pay for transportation, but this cannot be guaranteed if wheelchair accessible transportation is needed in certain portions of the region. In partnership with the Larimer County Office of Emergency Management, transportation is also available at no cost to all individuals over the age of 18 in Larimer County.
Your healthcare provider should ask if transportation is needed at the time of scheduling your appointment, but if not, please complete a short request form here or call the Vaccine Transportation Coordination Line at (970) 514-3636 between the hours of 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday. We recommend providing at least 24 hours’ notice before your scheduled appointment time.
The Rider’s Guide combines fare information, schedule information, and contact information for fixed-route services, demand-response services, commercial services, and paratransit in the region. The Rider’s Guide is updated every two years, and was most recently updated in 2019.
The Rider’s Guide is distributed to human service agencies, libraries, transit agencies, and other providers to spread awareness of available options. View the Rider’s Guide at the link below. To request printed copies free of charge, please contact Cory Schmitt at firstname.lastname@example.org or (970) 999-0072.
The Rider’s Guides are available for download in English and Spanish at the links below.
Find My Ride
As an online equivalent to the Rider’s Guide, the NFMRPO has produced the Online Rider’s Guide, located at noco.findmyride.info. The website provides an interactive tool where the user can list their pick-up location; provide details such as veteran status; final destination; and whether this is a medical or non-medical trip; and be given a list of possible transit choices. The website is updated periodically to include updated service areas, services, and other pertinent information.
One Call/One Click Center Project
In collaboration with the Larimer County Office on Aging, Larimer County Community Development, and other community partners, the NFRMPO is working on a One Call/One Click Center project for Larimer County. The OCOC will help create a one stop shop for information, referrals, and mobility assistance and also aims to improve efficiency and build partnerships to provide more options for residents and visitors in need.
Every quarter, NFRMPO staff prepares a newsletter about happenings for the Mobility Coordination. Below are the previous editions of the newsletter.
