Coordinated Human Services Mobility Plan
The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation invites members of the public, seniors, individuals with disabilities, human service agencies, public transit providers, and recipients of FTA Section 5310 funding to review and provide comments on the draft 2019 Coordinated Human Services Mobility (CHSM) Plan by October 31, 2019.
Culminating a more than one-year effort, the draft plan identifies gaps and challenges related to transportation for seniors, individuals with disabilities, low-income individuals, and veterans. The plan was developed with significant public input received through public meetings, ride-alongs, surveys, and interviews over a period of several months. The plan presents statewide and regional gaps and strategies to improve human services transportation in Virginia.
Programs funded under the FTA Section 5310 program must align with strategies defined in the CHSM Plan. When applying for Section 5310 funding through DRPT, applicants will demonstrate how their project aligns with the CHSM strategies and actions. This document can also be used to guide other transportation projects across the Commonwealth, and should represent statewide needs, challenges, and goals for the next three years.
