Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan
In August of 2005, Congress passed the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation, Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), reauthorizing the surface transportation act. As part of this reauthorization, grantees under the Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310), Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) (Section 5316), and New Freedom Initiative (Section 5317) grant programs must meet certain requirements in order to receive funding for fiscal 2007 (October 1, 2006) and beyond.
One of the SAFETEA-LU requirements is that projects from the programs listed above must be part of a “locally developed Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan.” This Transportation Plan is required to be developed through a process that includes representatives of public, private, and non-profit transportation services, human services providers, and the general public. The plans for Belmont County, Ohio and for Region X in West Virginia (Ohio, Marshall and Wetzel Counties) can be accessed below.
