The Regional Mobility Council of the KIPDA Region is a transportation advisory group whose vision is: “A regional coordinated transportation system that provides accessible, affordable, universal, and diverse transportation options. This system meets community transportation needs and serves every person, especially people with disabilities and older adults.”
The Regional Mobility Council’s purpose is to serve in an advisory capacity for the planning, optimization and coordination of transportation resources for the nine-county KIPDA region (Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana; and Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble counties in Kentucky).
The role of the council is to: 1) provide input for mobility and human service transportation planning; 2) help develop support for coordination among various players; 3) evaluate potential models for coordinated human services transportation; 4) provide input on the Coordinated Human Services – Public Transportation Plan required under Federal guidelines; 5) recommend and provide input on related projects and assist with prioritizing local needs. For more information about the coordinated plan and coordinated transportation planning click here.
Regional Mobility Council membership includes transportation and human service providers (i.e., aging, disability, low-income); consumers; advocates and other appropriate public and private groups. Advisory members (nonvoting) include local, state and federal officials and others who are interested in promoting the purpose and vision of the Regional Mobility Council.
Advisory members have all privileges of the Regional Mobility Council except the right to vote.
Meetings are held no less than quarterly and are open to the public. Public notice of Regional Mobility Council meetings is posted on TARC’s website.
