The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is creating a Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. This Plan will identify the transportation needs of persons with disabilities, older adults, and persons of low-income status and it will also offer strategies to address the gaps. The Plan will allow local agencies to access three sources of federal funds to support programs for these groups.

Senior and Disabled Transportation Outreach Meeting
Consumers, social service agencies, transportation programs, local governments, advocacy groups and other community members who serve or represent persons with disabilities or seniors, and those who are familiar with their transportation needs are invited to attend. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 14, 2007 from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Livermore Valley Transit Authority offices located at 1362 Rutan Court, Suite 100 in Livermore. The outreach meeting will include a brief overview of MTC’s Coordinated Public Transit - Human Service Transportation Plan, a short summary of current best practices for senior and disabled transportation and a feedback gathering session where participants may comment on transportation gaps in their county, current resources available to address these gaps and proposed new solutions to the issues identified.
