Toolkit for Rural Community Coordinated Transportation Services

Coordinated transportation services are evolving as rural communities around the country strive to address more effectively the mobility and access needs of rural residents. These efforts typically involve a number of stakeholders, including human service organizations, public transportation providers, tribal governments, school districts, and special districts. Many states have also recognized the need to coordinate efforts to administer programs supporting greater rural community mobility. The objective of this research is to develop a practical toolkit for use by local communities, state agencies, and tribal governments in planning and implementing coordinated community transportation services in rural areas. This toolkit shall include planning and implementation guidelines.
