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 communities – 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 thier own HSTP process/committees and/or plans within Region 6 are also included.
A number of service providers operate in Region 6, some of which provide public transit service, and others who serve limited populations, agency or institutional clients or schools. You can use this search engine to find what public transit service is near you.
