The West Virginia Department of Transportation Division of Public Transit is updating the coordinated human services transportation plans for a majority of the state’s planning and development regions. A series of public meetings will be held to inform interested individuals about the possibilities of coordinated public and human service agency transportation and, more importantly, to listen to anyone who rides, would like to ride, and/or operates public, private or human service agency transportation resources.
The coordinated plan input meeting for Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral and Pendleton counties will begin at 10 a.m. Friday at the Potomac Valley Transit Autahority office in Petersburg.
The meetings will begin with a brief presentation of the plan’s purpose. Following the presentation there will be an open discussion about specific needs for transportation to work, medical appointments, entertainment, or any other reason. Public, private and non-profit transportation providers, human service agencies, and any individual who needs transportation should attend.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more about the plan and share their input. Agencies who receive or intend to receive funding under the Federal Transit Administration Section 5310 Program must participate in coordination planning. All meeting locations are wheelchair accessible. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid, service for effective communication or would like to obtain instructions for virtual participation, should contact Bethany Renner by phone at (937) 299-5007 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residents are asked to provide their input through the public survey available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WVPlans. Paper versions of the survey are available upon request by calling (937) 299-5007.
