To improve safety, availability and quality of transportation for older adults, people with disabilities, those with lower incomes, and others with transportation needs.
In Ohio, Human Service Transportation is currently provided in a fragmented and inefficient manner.
There are 14 state agencies that invest at least $500 million annually to transport their clients and customers to jobs, medical care, and other destinations. These journeys make it possible to lead meaningful, productive lives. However, each agency has developed its own programs, policies, and procedures for transportation without structured coordination with other agencies. At the same time, people often don't have a way to get to jobs, the grocery, and other destinations.
Mobility Ohio is working to consolidate these policies and break down silos to deliver more efficient, high quality community transportation. The desired outcome is to provide more trips to more people, more conveniently, for the same dollars already being spent today.
