Title Ohio Mobility Improvement Study.
Publication Date Dec 2012
Media Count 332p
Personal Author R. Garrity R. Sarles W. Rodman
Abstract Health and human services transportation (HHST) describes a series of services, administered by a multitude of different organizations, directed at various populations - including the elderly, people with low incomes, and individuals with disabilities that is extensively provided throughout Ohio. All levels of government are actively involved in the provision of HHST programs, and more importantly, with public transportation, in the design and regulations that govern these activities. There is no Federal mandate to coordinate these resources to promote more efficiency in these common services. Despite ODOT's longstanding efforts to coordinate HHST in Ohio, many obstacles and challenges still exist to effectively coordinating health and human services transportation and public transportation in the state. The Ohio Mobility Improvement study is designed to determine whether Ohio can embrace a statewide approach that integrates HHST services so that individuals served by these agencies, including the elderly, people with low incomes, and individuals with disabilities, can meet basic mobility needs in an efficient and effective manner.
