Regional Coordination Information

Regionally Coordinated Transportation Planning efforts in Texas have been ongoing for years. Here is a brief overview of the past:

  • 2003, Texas legislature and governor added Chapter 461 to the Transportation Code requiring coordination of public transportation services funded with federal, state, or local funds

  • 2004, President Bush signed Executive Order 13330 calling for reduction of duplication among federally funded human service transportation services, increasing efficient delivery of services, and expanding access to transportation services for elderly, disabled, low income, and others

  • 2005, Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act (SAFETEA-LU), federal transportation bill called for establishing locally-developed, coordinated public transit/human service transportation plans

  • 2006, Texas Department of Transportation contracted with local agencies to develop a regional coordination plan for each of Texas's 24 designated state planning regions

  • • 2012, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), replacing SAFETEA-LU, the current federal transportation bill continued the requirement for coordination of public transpiration services funded with federal, state, or local funds. MAP-21 also implemented considerable changes including the eliminated two programs previously tied to regional planning efforts (Job Access Reverse Commute or JARC, and New Freedom) and specifically tied Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities program funding to regional planning efforts.

Planning Region 7, West Central Texas, covers 19 counties: Knox, Kent, Stonewall, Haskell, Throckmorton, Scurry, Fisher, Jones, Shackelford, Stephens, Mitchell, Nolan, Taylor, Callahan, Eastland, Runnels, Coleman, Brown, and Comanche counties.

Regional Coordination efforts today are working towards updating the previous Regional Transportation Coordination Plan by:

  • Gathering new data regarding Transportation Services available

  • Redefining the public's unmet transportation needs

  • Identifying current inefficiencies in the delivery of transportation services
