NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING - Region 6 Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan
The Capital Area Transportation Authority – in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, including Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties – invites all members of the public to review and provide feedback regarding the draft Region 6 Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan. Public feedback is welcome during CATA’s Local Advisory Council meeting Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024, at 3:30 p.m. The meeting will be hosted by CATA at 4615 Tranter Street, Lansing, MI 48910.
The Coordinated Plan is the region’s blueprint for planning, funding and coordinating strategies that serve people with disabilities, older adults and low-income residents. It is a federal requirement under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The Plan aims to identify transportation gaps faced by transportation-disadvantaged populations; establish priorities for funding decisions; and focus on a broad range of mobility strategies to improve coordination among public transit agencies and human services transportation providers. To remove barriers to public transportation and address transportation gaps, the plan is periodically updated to consider the evolving transportation needs of these communities.
