2018 Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan

The purpose of the Sioux Falls MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) Area Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan is to: 1) identify the unmet transportation needs for seniors and individuals with disabilities; and 2) develop strategies, activities, and projects to address the identified gaps between current services and needs, as well as opportunities to achieve efficiencies in service delivery.  Federal transportation policy requires that a locally-developed, coordinated public transit/human services planning process be undertaken as a condition of receiving funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) program directed at meeting the needs of the plan’s target populations: seniors and individuals with disabilities.
