The Access for All Transit Plan
The Access for All Transit Plan serves at the update to the 2015 Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan. Federally required to be updated every 5 years, the Plan is anticipated to be approved by the SJTPO Policy Board at the November 23, 2020 public meeting.
A public comment period is now open. Comments on the current Plan will help to better inform the recommendations to be made in the Access for All Transit Plan.
SJTPO is beginning the process of updating its Access for All Transit Plan, which serves as the 5-year update to the 2015 Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan. The purpose of this Federally required plan is to have SJTPO, along with regional stakeholders, identify unmet transportation needs and recommend measures to increase service quality and reduce the cost of providing services to a segment of the region’s population that is unable to or not permitted to operate a vehicle. Often referred to as the transportation disadvantaged population, these individuals or groups of persons can include senior citizens, the disabled, and low income persons/households. The Plan is essential, as transportation services are necessary to allow those in need to get to jobs or job training, child daycare facilities, medical appointments, and shopping or recreational centers.
