Brownwood, TX 76802
Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016
The purpose of the meeting is to gather information from local stakeholders regarding the distribution of funds for the local Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities program. Information will be provided as to the local application process.
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 elderly individuals and persons with disabilities when current transportation service is unavailable, insufficient or inappropriate.
The way the funds will be distributed has changed. The public is invited to provide input on the distribution of Fiscal Year 2015 funds available to the local area. Information will be provided by the local public transportation coordinator about the application process.
