Description:

TxDOT is hosting a series of listening sessions regarding public transportation for seniors and individuals with disabilities in rural communities throughout the state.

Public transportation provides mobility options, reduces traffic congestion, conserves fuel, improves air quality, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and supports emergency preparedness in the areas it serves.

TxDOT promotes and supports public transportation by collaborating with local governments, nonprofit entities and other transportation providers. TxDOT provides funding to assist the needs of seniors and persons with disabilities when current transportation service is unavailable, insufficient or inappropriate.

The federal Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities program provides funds for public transportation services aiding seniors and individuals with disabilities. The public is invited to provide input regarding local needs.

Special Accommodations:

If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this meeting, please call 512.360.0668 or send an email at least five working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
