RIPTA is working with the statewide Human Services Transportation Coordinating Council to prepare a 2022 update of the Rhode Island Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Coordinated PlanThis plan is updated every five years to consider the changing transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes; provide strategies for meeting those needs; and prioritize services for funding and implementation.

The consultant team is now working with RIPTA and the RI Human Services Transportation Coordinating Council to update the strategies explored in the 2018 Coordinated Plan and to consider new ideas for enhancing human services transportation in Rhode Island.  The 2022 Coordinated Plan update will include:

  • An inventory of human services transportation providers in RI
  • An assessment of needs and gaps
  • A review of ongoing programs and initiatives in RI, as well as best practices from other states and regions
  • New/updated strategies for enhancing human services transportation and coordination in RI

Four public listening sessions were held in April and May to hear from transportation consumers, providers, and representatives of advocacy organizations that support the targeted populations in particular. Participants were asked to share their comments, ideas and concerns related to human services transportation in Rhode Island.

If you missed these sessions, you may view the presentation here. If you have any comments or questions, please send and an email with Subject: Coordinated Plan Comment to Joelle Kanter:

The next round of public outreach is anticipated for July 2022. Information will be posted on this webpage once details are available.
