TMACOG Coordination Plan
The Coordinated Transportation Plan Requirement
With the passage of federal transportation authorizing legislation (SAFETEA-LU) in August 2005, three new or modified funding programs administered by the Federal Transit Administration require a Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan and the competitive selection of projects for funding. The focus of the planning is on the transportation mobility of the following target groups: 1) older persons, 2) persons with disabilities and 3) persons from low income families. The plan should recommend strategies that improve travel mobility by making better use of federal programs across departments and agencies to meet the needs of the target populations.
For the Toledo OH – MI Urbanized Area, this plan was developed collaboratively by the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA) and the Toledo Metropolitan Area council of Governments (TMACOG).
