Rural Transportation Coordination Council (RTCC)
Across Texas and the United States, the increasing need for public and human services transportation continues to outstrip the funding available for a number of public transportation programs that the general public depends upon. Those individuals hit hardest by decreased funding are the transportation disadvantaged, commonly defined as those with limited transportation options due to disabilities, age, or income status.
To help meet the needs of the transportation disadvantaged, funding and public education for accessing public transit continues to remain at the forefront of this regions planning and operational initiatives. The Mobility Management Program has been successful in connecting the public with rides.
The Heart of Texas Council of Governments region is committed in pursuing planning and operational funding to increase the availability of public transit by implementing performance measures to evaluate effectiveness of service delivery.
