Coordinated Public Transit–Human Services Transportation Plan

Home » Our Work

Take the Survey:

The MPO invites you to provide input on the following topics:

  • Transportation needs for seniors and people with a disability
  • Ways to address these needs

Your input will be used to update the region’s Coordinated Public Transit–Human Services Transportation (CPT-HST) Plan, which supports coordinated human service transportation planning in the Boston metro region. Applications for funding from the Federal Transit Administration’s Section 5310 Program must meet a need identified in the plan. Please complete the survey by February 28, 2019.

The Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (pdf) (html) documents the MPO region’s unmet human-service transportation needs, describes the MPO region’s current transportation network, and provides ideas for improving transportation services through coordination among public transit agencies and human services transportation providers. The CPT-HST Plan is prepared by the MPO to guide organizations in the region to develop proposals eligible to receive funding in the Federal Transit Administration’s Section 5310 transit funding program. This program provides capital and operations funding for services for the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Public Participation

The CPT-HST Plan was developed with the participation of representatives of public, private, and nonprofit transportation and human-services providers, as well as members of the public. The MPO held public planning forums to discuss the needs of the elderly (65 years and older), people with a disability, and individuals with low incomes in the region, including strategies for meeting those needs. A survey was also developed, which was distributed through the MPO’s transportation equity email list, posted on the MPO’s website, and distributed at the public forums. Input from these outreach methods was integrated into the CPT-HST Plan. For more information, please contact Betsy Harvey, MPO Staff, at 857.702.3701 or eharvey@ctps.org (email).
