Updating The Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan Update (aka Coordinated Plan)
As required by the Federal Transit Administration's Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program (Section 5310), projects selected for funding under the Section 5310 program must be included in a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan. The current Indianapolis Regional Coordinated Plan for the eight-county Indianapolis region, including Boone, Hamilton, Hendricks, Marion, Hancock, Morgan, Johnson, and Shelby counties, is expiring and it is time to update it by refreshing the inventory of providers, unmet needs and gaps in services, and goals for the future.

Project Kickoff / Stakeholder Interviews
Meeting(s) with transportation providers (public, private, non-profit) and human service agency organizations to discuss providers' inventory of resources, and identify unmet needs, gaps in services, and goals for the future. The project team hopes to get participation and input from all types of transportation providers from throughout the region, not just those seeking projects to be funded through Section 5310 federal funding.
We received hundreds of responses to a survey that was open to the public from December 26, 2016 - March 24, 2017. Thank you!
Survey responses came from people throughout Central Indiana. We are currently working to summarize those results and incorporate them into the Coordinated Plan's recommendations. Stay tuned for further updates!
Draft report, issued July 2017 for review and comment. This version of the plan will be up for approval at the October 25, 2017 IRTC Policy Committee Meeting.
