Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan
SRTC, in partnership with Spokane Transit, is working on the 2022 update to the Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation (CPT-HSTP). The plan update process will take place through Fall 2022, and a project page has been established to learn more and take input from public transportation users, service providers, and other community members in our region.
The CPT-HSTP plan addresses special public transportation needs in Spokane County, particularly for people with disabilities, older people, and individuals with limited incomes. The current adopted CPT-HSTP was approved by the SRTC Board on November 8, 2018 (click the document image to view).
The CPT-HSTP must meet state and federal requirements for human services transportation coordination. It includes the following:
- Identification of special transportation needs, including service to rural areas, as determined through outreach and discussion with service providers and transit users.
- Demographic data, location of people with special transportation needs, their common trip origins and destinations, and existing transportation services available.
- Solutions that can aid in 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.
