Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan

MTC has adopted a plan to better meet the transportation needs of older adults, people with disabilities and populations with low incomes, so that all Bay Area residents can get to where they need to go.

When everyone has access to transportation, the Bay Area is a better place to live and work. 

The Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan) coordinates transit agencies and other transportation providers to better meet the needs of: 

  • Older adults
  • People with disabilities
  • Residents with low incomes

Updated every four years, the Coordinated Plan is the region’s blueprint for planning, funding and coordinating strategies that serve these communities.

The Coordinated Plan is a federal requirement under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.
