Region 6 Map

     

The Human Services Transportation Plan (HSTP) works to ensure the best possible use of scarce public transportation resources, identifying goals for transit service and objectives for implementation.  The plan draws together two groups – public and private providers of transportation services, and social service agencies and advocacy groups representing the riders.  Some social service agencies are also transportation providers.

This program began as a federal funding initiative to make the most effective use of resources for transportation for seniors, people with disabilities and others needing paratransit service such as non-emergency medical transportation particularly in rural areas. Urbanized Areas with Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) that have their own HSTP process/committees and/or plans within Region 6 are also included.
