Coordinated Human-Services Transportation Plan

Home » Our Work

The Coordinated Public Transit–Human Services Transportation Plan (CPTHST) (pdf) (html) documents the MPO region’s unmet human-service transportation needs, describes the MPO region’s current transportation network, and provides ideas for improving transportation services. The CPTHST Plan is prepared by the MPO to allow organizations in the region to be eligible to receive funding in the Federal Transit Administration’s Section 5310 transit funding program. This program provides capital and operations funding for services for the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Public Participation

The CHST Plan was developed with the participation of representatives of public, private, and nonprofit transportation and human-services providers, as well as members of the public. The MPO held public planning forums to discuss the needs of the target populations in the region and strategies for meeting those needs. Preparation for these events included conducting a survey. Public input received at these discussions and by other means was integrated into the CHST Plan.
