2018 Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan Update

SRTC, in coordination with Spokane Transit Authority (STA), will be updating the Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan (CPT-HSTP) during 2018.

The intent of the CPT-HSTP is to address special transportation service needs, particularly for persons with disabilities, older adults, youth, and individuals with limited incomes within and traveling to Spokane County. For more information, and to provide input, see the public comment section at the bottom of this page.

The 2018 CPT-HSTP update must meet state and federal requirements for human services transportation coordination. The update will include the following elements.

  • Outreach and discussions with service providers and transit users to coordinate and diagnose special transportation needs, including service to rural areas.
  • Demographic data, location of people with special transportation needs, their common trip origins and destinations, and existing transportation services available.
  • Identification of technology-based solutions to aid the planning and delivery of services.
  • Description of public transportation needs / gaps in service and strategies to meet those needs.
  • Identification of community project priorities.
  • Coordination with local emergency management agencies and transportation providers to ensure disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.

Schedule

The CPT-HSTP is scheduled for completion in Fall 2018. A Human Services Transportation Working Group will meet periodically through the Spring and Summer. Public outreach efforts will be ongoing during this time.

The next Working Group Meeting: THURSDAY, JUNE 7  1:30 – 3:00 at SRTC

2014  Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan

Coordinated-Human-Services-Plan-2014* was developed in collaboration with the Spokane Transit Authority (STA) to improve transportation services for persons with disabilities, older adults, and individuals with lower incomes in Spokane County.

The HSTP provides guidance to aid communities, social service agencies and service providers in coordinating transportation resources through multiple federal programs. Coordination enhances transportation access, minimizes duplication of services, and facilitates the most appropriate cost effective transportation possible with available resources.
