Human Services Transportation Planning

As a part of the County's 2035 Transportation Plan, coordinating human services transportation was included under the 'Transit Element.' The mission of the county regarding human services transportation services is to:

        "Coordinate human services transportation so it is more efficient and provides countywide coverage for people with mobility challenges such as older adults, people with disabilities and individuals with low income that is convenient, affordable for users and cost effective for service providers."

Adams County Local Coordinating Council (LCC)

To accomplish this mission, the county retained the services of Christensen Consulting to facilitate the formation of a Local Coordinating Council (LCC). The LCC is designed to coordinate human services transportation in the county to provide efficiency, bring more resources to the county and provide more service to people who need human services transportation.
