BCAG has developed a Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan in response to legislation under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Act:A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU).SAFETEA-LU requires this locally developed plan to establish "a unified comprehensive strategy for public transportation service delivery" through a coordinated planning process to address unmet needs of target populations. Funds available under the SAFETEA-LU programs are matched by local human service resources and other funding to leverage more transportation for targeted individuals.
The plan specifically identifies and prioritizes
projects eligible for Federal funding to address transportation needs of 1) persons of low income, 2) persons with disabilities and 3) seniors.
BCAG worked with the transit planning firms A-M-M-A and Transit Resource Center to prepare this plan.
