Transportation Coordination Action Plan

for the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area

Goals

The goals of the Public Transit and Human Services Transportation  Coordination Action Plan are to:

  • Increase understanding of public transit and human service transportation coordination among stakeholders, elected officials and the Metropolitan Council in the metro area. 

  • Identify the potential for better coordination with the assistance of federal funding, especially with regard to service duplication and unmet needs in the metro area. 

  • Establish strategies for associated federal funding sources that support coordination within the delivery of human services transportation. 

  • Prioritize needs and strategies 

The Council developed the plan in collaboration with public transit providers, private transportation providers, human service transportation providers, and local government staff through an advisory committee.  An online survey was submitted to all public, private, and non-profit providers to identify existing services and service gaps.  All providers were invited to participate in a half-day workshop to identify strategies to meet transportation needs.

The needs and strategies of this plan were developed for distributing federal funding under the JARC, New Freedom and Elderly and Disabled Program Capital Assistance for Specialized Transit Vehicles programs.
