Community Transportation Needs Assessment

Collaborating with residents, organizations, and local governments, this process helps identify the unmet needs of communities. The assessment helps a community understand the transportation landscape and work to find transportation solutions.

Key elements include:

  • A transportation gap analysis including current public transit, commercial providers, ridesharing, carpooling, bike/scooter-sharing, innovative transit services, and volunteer services
  • Community engagement through forums, workshops, house meetings, focus groups, interviews, and more
  • Exploration of nontraditional transportation options
  • Population demographics, geography, destination hubs, and primary health concerns to develop priority needs
  • MRHA members utilizing HealthTran can access the Ride Scheduling Technology Platform and Volunteer Driver Program.
