Human Services Transportation Coordination
The goal of coordinating transportation services is to achieve better service efficiency, increase client response, reduce overall costs for transportation and provide more travel options for all members of the community. A Coordinated Plan is the vehicle by which the community can determine how existing transportation resources can best be used to meet current and future transportation needs.
Federal law lays out the requirements for a Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan, also known as a Coordinated Plan. Several counties in central Ohio have completed such plans, giving entities within those counties access to certain federal funds that can be used for the following purposes:
Franklin County Coordinated Plan Update
The Franklin County Coordinated Plan update was adopted by the MORPC Policy Committee on July 19, 2012 by Resolution T-11-12. The Board of Trustees for the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) adopted the plan on July 25, 2012 by Resolution 2012-51. This version replaces the original plan, adopted in April 2008.
