Federal transit law, as amended by SAFETEA–LU (2005), and
continued in MAP-21 (2012), requires
that projects selected for funding under the Section 5310 Enhanced
Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program be
“derived from a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human
services transportation plan” and that the plan be “developed
through a process that includes representatives of public, private,
and non-profit transportation and human services providers and
participation by members of the public.”
In response to this requirement, WisDOT collaborated with Regional
Planning Commission (RPC) planners to develop a coordination planning
process and toolkit.
The toolkit is a resource only; use is not mandatory. If a
county/multi-county agency chooses to use the coordination meeting and plan
resources contained in the toolkit, the requirements of
the Federal Transit Association and WisDOT’s reporting requirements will be met. The
required elements of a coordinated public transit-human services
transportation plan include:
An assessment of available services that identifies current
transportation providers (public, private, and non-profit);
An assessment of the transportation needs for individuals
with disabilities and older adults. This
assessment can be based on the experiences and perceptions of the
planning partners or on more sophisticated data collection
efforts, as well as gaps in service;
Strategies, activities, and/or projects to address the
identified gaps between current services and needs, as well as
opportunities to improve efficiency in service delivery; and
Priorities for implementation based on resources (from
multiple program sources), time, and feasibility for implementing
specific strategies and/or activities identified.
