Access, Equity & Mobility
MTC plans, coordinates and funds programs and projects to give older adults, people with disabilities and people with lower incomes equal access to transportation services.
Life in the Bay Area is better when everyone is able to get around — to jobs, to food, to healthcare, to family and friends.
MTC is at work planning, funding and coordinating accessible transportation for the Bay Area’s older adults, people with disabilities and people with lower incomes.
Focuses on five actions to improve transportation access for people with disabilities, older adults and people with low incomes in the Bay Area.
Community-led planning to improve mobility options for historically underserved communities.
The region’s blueprint to promote mobility for the Bay Area’s older adults, people with disabilities and people with lower incomes.
County-based assistance to help older adults, people with disabilities and people with lower incomes find information and resources for transportation.
By identifying which Bay Area communities are or have historically been underserved, MTC can direct funding toward projects that enable more equitable access to transportation, housing and services.
Funding projects that advance mobility and accessibility for people with low incomes.
A site-specific suite of mobility services in affordable-housing communities.
Transportation projects that serve older adults and people with disabilities.
A project designed to stimulate connection between the disabled community and Bay Area transportation agencies.
The Bay Area’s population is aging, and, over the last decade, the portion of the population living in poverty has suburbanized.
On top of that, a growing share of the population lacks access to a vehicle. Together, these trends could cause our most vulnerable populations to have fewer transportation options and less access to vital services, like food, healthcare, jobs and recreation.
