The Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan (CPTHSTP) identifies the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes; provides strategies for meeting those needs; and prioritizes transportation services for funding and implementation. The plan is developed through a process that involves the MPO; representatives of public, private, and non-profit transportation and human services providers; and members of the public.
