Public Transit – Human Service Transportation Coordination Plan Update
Boonslick Regional Planning Commission hosted its first meeting to update the Public Transit – Human Service Transportation Coordination Plan (PTHSTC Plan) for the Boonslick region on Sept. 19, 2017. The PTHSTC Plan is a five-year plan which was originally approved in 2008 and last updated in 2013. The 2013 plan can be found at http://boonslick.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Boonslick-PTHST-2013-Plan.pdf.
This plan is important to many organizations within our region that offer transportation options to the elderly, disabled and low-income populations. With the approved and adopted plan in place, eligible organizations can apply for grant funding to improve and support their transportation efforts.
BRPC Mobility Manager Kelly Anders was in attendance to provide3 updated information about the MO RIDES transportation referral service. Staff continues to receive numerous calls from individuals in need of transportation for a variety of reasons, predominantly for medical appointments. Kelly also informed the group that the MO RIDES website is continuously updated with new transportation providers.
A second meeting to update the PTHSTC Plan will be held in January 2018. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact BRPC Senior Planner Krishna Kunapareddy via e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at (636) 456-3473.
