MARC supports and
contracts for transit services that meet the needs of the region's special
populations including the aging, welfare recipients, low-income individuals
or persons with disabilities. Elements
of MARC's special transportation initiative are linked below:
- Coordinated Public Transit–Human Services Transportation Plan
Outlines how transit agencies, social service agencies, municipalities and other transportation providers can most efficiently and effectively work together to improve regional mobility for individuals with special transportation needs.
Access and Reverse Commute Program (FTA Section 5316)
Improves mobility and economic opportunity for welfare recipients and
low-income individuals by funding new or expanded transportation services.
- New Freedom Program (FTA Section 5317)
Supports new public transportation services and public transportation alternatives that go beyond those required by the Americans with Disablities Act of 1990.
- Transportation for Elderly and Disabled Program (FTA Section 5310)
Provides funding to support
transporting the elderly and/or disabled where public transportation
services are unavailable, insufficient or inappropriate.
In conjunction with MARC's Department of Aging Services, MARC
contracts each fiscal year with providers that offer transportation
services for the aging and persons with disabilities, serving Cass,
Clay, Jackson, Platte and Ray counties in Missouri.
Transportation-Job Access Partnership
This advisory committee addresses programs, funding and mobility needs for populations
underserved by traditional forms of transit.
