Let's make transportation convenient for older adults and people with disabilities.
If you're an older adult, have a disability, or are a veteran, transportation in Contra Costa County can be challenging. We want to identify ways to make it easier for you to get around the county—whether you’re going to an appointment, getting groceries, visiting family, or anything else.
What will the plan do?
Learn about existing services and how they are used
Evaluate transportation options, strengths, and challenges
Initiate new ideas for accessible transportation
Context: This Accessible Transportation Strategic (ATS) Plan was born from the 2017 Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP). The CTP found a need to address the challenges associated with: (1) different types of accessible transportation services; (2) multiple transportation providers including cities, transit operators, social services agencies, and non-profit organizations; and (3) diverse, and sometimes overlapping, service areas. The 2020 Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP) further set expectations for the ATS Plan to ultimately "implement a customer-focused, user-friendly, seamless coordinated system”.
Timeframe: The ATS Plan began in 2019 and will continue through 2020. We anticipate the plan to be complete by the end of February 2021.
Outreach: Success of the ATS Plan hinges on inclusive and equitable public engagement. This includes input from organizations, key stakeholders, and the broader Contra Costa community.
