West Virginia Department of Transportation Division of Public Transit is updating the coordinated human services transportation plans for the state’s eleven planning and development regions.

A series of public meetings will be held to inform interested individuals about the possibilities of coordinated public and human service agency transportation and, more importantly, to listen to anyone who rides, would like to ride, and/or operates public, private or human service agency transportation resources.

The meetings will begin with a brief presentation of the plan purpose. Following the presentation there will be an open discussion about specific needs for transportation to work, medical appointments, entertainment, or any other reason. Public, private and non-profit transportation providers, human service agencies, and any individual who needs transportation should attend.

The public is encouraged to attend the following meeting to learn more about the plan and share their input. Agencies who receive or intend to receive funding under the Federal Transit Administration Section 5310 Program must participate in coordination planning. RSVP by October 30 to (800) 684-1458. Free parking is available at all meeting locations. All meeting locations are wheelchair accessible. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication to participate in a meeting should call (800) 684-1458 by October 30.
