Heartland Regional Transportation Disadvantaged Summit
November 15 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Special Guest Speaker: Steve Holmes, Executive Director of the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged
The Transportation Disadvantaged Program is a coordinated system in all 67 Florida counties that provides vital transportation to medical appointments, employment, educational and other life-sustaining services for those who cannot obtain their own transportation due to a disability, age, or income for an affordable co-pay.
Within the six counties that comprise the Heartland Regional Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), there is door-to-door paratransit service through the Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) program and rural public transit, which covers three distinct transit planning areas including DeSoto County, Glades and Hendry County, and Hardee, Highlands, and Okeechobee Counties.
This summit will bring together the planning agencies, local coordinating boards, community transportation coordinators, and service providers discuss the following topics and hear program updates on:
- The Heartland Rural Mobility Plan Update
- The Highlands Transit Plan
- Local Coordinating Boards
- Community Transportation Coordinators
