Public Asked to Identify Transportation Needs for Older Adults, People with Disabilities, and Low-Income Residents
City and County of Honolulu Coordinated Human Services Transportation Project
Four Town Hall Meetings in November
Hauula, Waianae, Wahiawa, Aiea
The City and County of Honolulu, Department of Transportation Services is sponsoring transportation workshops to hear from residents about the transportation needs of seniors, people with disabilities, and people with lower incomes. Participants will discuss challenges and identify opportunities to improve transportation for elderly, disabled, and low-income residents.
Participants will also learn about a planning effort underway designed to improve transportation by coordinating transit, human services, and other community transportation services. These meetings will help to create a human services transportation coordination plan. Having this plan will provide the opportunity for organizations to be eligible to receive certain federal transportation dollars.
The plan will incorporate the needs, strengths, and desires of the community. Upon completion of the plan, the City and County of Honolulu expects to develop one or more demonstration projects based, on plan recommendations.
Meetings will be held in November in four different locations around Oahu:
Hauula Community Center, Thursday, November 20, 2008, 3:00 to 5:00 PM
Waianae District Park, Friday, November 21, 2008, 9:00 to 11:00 AM
