Public Transportation Coordination
For all Montanans with disabilities, transportation plays an important role in life. Regardless of age or ability, people need to be able to get around in their community so that they can spend time with family, shop, get to appointments and live a complete life. Reliable and accessible transportation is key to a fulfilling that goal. One way Montanans with disabilities meets those needs is through one of the 40 public transit agencies across the state.
A bridge between Montanans with disabilities and their options is the Transportation Coordinator for the Department of Public Health and Human Services. The Coordinator's job is to look at all public and private aspects of transportation and assess if they are meeting the needs of traveling Montanans with disabilities. The Coordinator works with agencies within DPHHS and across the state to improve transportation, and works with consumers to explain their transportation options.
