The current federal legislation, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act), requires the establishment of a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan. This plan analyzes gaps in transportation service for the identified populations and provides guidance for the use of funds from the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Section 5310 Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities Program. All projects selected by TARC for funding from FTA Section 5310 must be derived form this coordinated plan and be chosen.
This plan serves as a strategy for enhancing mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities in the KIPDA region (Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Spencer, Shelby, and Trimble counties in Kentucky and Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana).
The CHSTP was last updated and approved by KIPDA’s Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) on November 24, 2020.
KIPDA has also developed a database of private transportation providers in the region. This list contains many transportation services that are specifically for older adults and/or disabled persons. It also lists handicap accessible services. Use the filters on the side to locate the services.
