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.
