The Metropolitan Council is receiving public comment on the Draft Public Transit and Human Services Transportation Coordinated Plan. The plan supports coordination of transportation services between transit providers and human service agencies that serve people who have a disability, older adults, and people who have low incomes.
A steering committee and workshop participants representing public and private transportation providers, human service transportation providers, state agencies, riders, healthcare providers, counties, and organizations who serve these populations, worked together to identify barriers to service and strategies to improve access.
The plan is required for distributing federal funding under the Federal Transit Administration Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities program (also referred to as Section 5310). This program is administered by MnDOT.
