Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan)
The Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan (CPTHSTP or Coordinated Plan) aims to identify transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes, provide strategies for meeting those needs, and prioritize transportation services for funding and implementation. The plan was developed in cooperation with the county’s human service agencies, especially to meet the planning requirement for certain Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding. Following the federal transportation law revisions enacted through the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), the single FTA funding program for which this plan is a prerequisite is the Section 5310 program which provides assistance for transportation aiding the elderly and individuals with disabilities. The plan also serves as the foundation for future public transit / human service transportation coordination and planning beyond just the Section 5310 program funding considerations.
If you have questions about the Coordinated Plan, the Section 5310 funding program or any matter related to the Orange County Transportation Council, please contact OCTC or:
