Southern Maryland Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan Workshop

Notices
Thursday, January 29, 2015

On behalf of the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), the KFH Group invites you to participate in the update of the Maryland Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plans. These regional plans identify the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes; provide strategies for meeting local needs; and prioritize transportation services and projects for funding and implementation.

Input from you and a wide range of stakeholders is a key component in the update of the Coordinated Transportation Plans. In addition, while the latest version of each region's plan will serve as the basis for funding through the MTA, Section 5310 (Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities) Progam for State FY2016 and 2017, future projects through the Section 5310 program will be derived from the updated plans. Therefore, it is vital that current and prospective applicants for Section 5310 funds are involved in the planning process.

Please plan to join us at the workshop(s) most appropriate to your services or interests. Please note that the update of the Coordinated Transportation Plan for the Baltimore Region that includes Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard Counties will be conducted later this year. The coordinated planning process for the Washington Urbanized Area that includes Montgomery and Prince George's Counties is conducted by the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board.
