Regional Mobility Plan

MORPC is working with nine Central Ohio counties to develop a transit coordinated plan for the ODOT Human Service Transportation Coordination Region 6 – the Regional Mobility Plan.

The Regional Mobility Plan will identify local transportation needs of people with disabilities, older adults, and those with low incomes. It will help to provide strategies for meeting those needs and prioritize transportation services and projects for funding and implementation.

Goals for the Regional Mobility Plan:

  • Identify community resources for transportation and mobility
  • Understand the gaps and unmet needs within those resources
  • Determine the approach to addressing those gaps and needs

The Regional Mobility Plan applies to the area within the blue boundary.

Public Engagement Opportunities

To fully evaluate the needs and limitations of the region, the Regional Mobility Plan will require an extensive public engagement campaign. Due to the nature of the populace most typically served by human service transportation, the participation in planning activities must include participation and/or representation of older adults, individuals with disabilities, people with low incomes, public, private and non-profit transportation and human services providers, and other members of the general public.

 

The survey is also available in Spanish and Somali.

Surveys

Transportation User Survey

The transportation user survey is designed to collect input regarding travel experience from residents within MORPC’s 15-county area of interest. The survey includes questions related to mode choice and the physical environment.

MORPC will have a drawing for four $25 Visa gift cards as an incentive for those who participate in the survey.

TRANSPORTATION USER SURVEY

The survey is also available in Spanish and Somali.

Transportation Provider Survey

The transportation provider survey will be used to collect provider information to support future efficiency and connectivity improvement initiatives. It will also be used to build the database for Gohio Connect — a specialized transportation search tool for designed to connect older adults, people with disabilities, and people with low income to transportation services for any trip purpose and need. The tool will be available to the public in late winter 2021.

Public Meetings

Four virtual public meetings were held on the Regional Mobility Plan. Anyone within the MORPC’s 15-county area of interest is encouraged to watch the video of one of the meetings below.

 

There will be additional public meetings and opportunities to comment on the plan before it is finalized later this year.
County Stakeholder Meetings

MORPC staff will meet from stakeholders from each county virtually to discuss local-level mobility challenges. These virtual meetings are limited to stakeholders belonging to transportation services, social service organizations, and planning organizations. If you wish to be included, contact Lexi Petrella at apetrella@morpc.org.

The Regional Mobility Plan is expected to be completed in October 2021.
