One of the largest deliverables for the NFRMPO’s Mobility Coordination Program is the Coordinated Public Transit/Human Service Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan). The current Coordinated Plan was adopted by the NFRMPO Planning Council in October 2017, with support from the Larimer County and Weld County Mobility Committees.
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.
