Coordinated Plan Background
To promote mobility for all Bay Area residents, MTC has adopted a Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan). The plan aims to improve coordination among transit agencies and other transportation providers to better meet the needs of:
- People with disabilities
- Low-income residents
The Coordinated Plan is a federal requirement under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The Coordinated Plan identifies transportation gaps faced by transportation-disadvantaged populations, establishes priorities for funding decisions, and focuses on a broad range of mobility services to improve coordination among public transit agencies and human services transportation providers.
Coordinated Plan Update Process
To update the Coordinated Plan, MTC reviewed and updated information on existing transportation resources serving transportation-disadvantaged populations in the region, reviewed and updated transportation gaps faced by these populations, and updated solutions and regional strategies to improve transportation service delivery and coordination. In addition, the Draft Coordinated Plan adds new demographic data from the Census Bureau, documents innovative strategies and best practices, and outlines implementation steps for MTC and its partners.
