Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan

Benefits of a Coordinated Plan

The CMMPO receives 80% of Metropolitan Planning funds (PL) from FHWA through MassDOT and 20% from MassDOT local match to complete the Coordinated Plan. The planning process timeline to develop the plan should align with the update of the Long-Range Transportation Plan every 5 years. Both plans should be used to identify strategies that address gaps in public transit and human services transportation for seniors and people with disabilities and coordinate the use of FTA Section 5310 (Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and People with Disabilities) with other federal funds used for metropolitan planning.

The FY 2025 Coordinated Plan update will replace the FY 2020 plan and ensures that applicants are eligible for Community Transit Grant Program competitive funding from MassDOT for both the operating and mobility management application cycle and the vehicle application cycle from FY 2025 to FY 2030.

The Coordinated Plan should address both regulatory and local community goals. The scope should address the needs of diverse groups, such as persons with disabilities, seniors, individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and those with low incomes. Progress made since the last plan and future goals should be part of the document. Ideally, plans should be updated on a regular basis, such as every 2-5 years, and should be viewed as living documents that can be used toward the goal of coordinated transportation.
