Updated Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan for Cattaraugus County

News from Planning, Posted on Mon, 03/24/2014 - 11:09am

The Community Transportation Coalition of Cattaraugus County has completed its 2014 Update to the 2009 Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan for Cattaraugus County.

The Update is available for review at the following location on the County's website:  http://www.cattco.org/planning/transportation_coalition. It is also available in Little Valley at the County Office Building in the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism and in Olean at the Olean Public Library on North Second Street.

The purpose of the Coordinated Plan is to identify the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, people with low incomes, and the general public, provide strategies for meeting those local needs, and prioritize transportation services for funding and implementation.  A coordinated plan enhances transportation access, minimizes duplication of services, and encourages the most cost-effective transportation possible. The transportation needs in Cattaraugus County will evolve over time and further opportunities to address transportation gaps or redundancies will be discovered.
