What is Transit Coordination?

Transportation coordination is a cooperative arrangement between transportation providers and organizations needing transportation services. Coordination is a key factor in providing a comprehensive transportation network.

Why Coordinate?

Coordination between transportation providers and service agencies can help fill transportation gaps. That’s because coordinated transportation can help agencies provide more rides using the same or fewer resources, make transportation easier to use, and give customers more options of where and when to travel. What’s more, coordination can help providers and agencies use their vehicles and other resources more efficiently. More about why to coordinate

RTCC Stakeholder Workshops, Round 2

The purpose of Regional Transportation Coordination Councils is to facilitate coordination between transportation providers and service agencies in order to break down transportation barriers and offer a seamless system of transportation services throughout the state.

These workshops that build on an initial set of workshops held in 2015. At the 2015 workshops, participants identified features they would like to include in a potential transportation coordination council for their regions. Based on input from the first set of stakeholder workshops, draft plans for implementing RTCCs have been developed and will be shared for comment and feedback at this workshop.
