The PPACG Board of Directors approved release of the DRAFT 2035 Human Services Transportation Coordination Plan Update for public review at their meeting on November 9, 2011. The draft plan is available below. Public comments are accepted through the website and at a public meeting at 4:00 p.m. on December 1, 2011, at the PPACG building (14 South Chestnut Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80905).
This plan allows human services transportation providers to apply for federal funds to provide transportation to those who have transportation disadvantages. For transportation providers to be eligible to receive these funds, a locally developed, coordinated human services transportation plan must be prepared. Human services transportation refers to specialized transportation services provided to people who have transportation disadvantages: elderly persons, persons with disabilities, low income, and persons with other special transportation needs.
The public comment period ends on December 10, 2011. Please send all questions and comments to Lisa Thomas or call 719-471-7080 ext. 114. After the public comment period, the PPACG Board of Directors will be asked to approve the final 2035 Human Services Transportation Coordination Plan Update.
