HUMAN SERVICES TRANSPORTATION COORDINATION

Some private and non-profit transit operators serve specific populations, such as seniors and the developmentally disabled. In many cases, the public transit agencies must work with the human service agencies through Human Services Transportation Coordination processes.

The goal of coordinating transportation services is to achieve better service efficiency, increase client response, reduce overall costs for transportation and provide more travel options for all members of the community. A Coordinated Plan is the vehicle by which the community can determine how existing transportation resources can best be used to meet current and future transportation needs.

A Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan helps prioritize which projects and programs to fund. 

County Coordinated Plans
