23 Unmet Transportation Needs Survey Summary & Results February 2014, GATRA, SRPEDD, SRTA, and BAT conducted a survey, analyzing key factors related to transportation in the SE Massachusetts The survey was sent to 169 stakeholders from several key agencies and non-profit organizations The survey was closed on February 28, individuals responded to the survey

24 Unmet Transportation Needs Survey

25 Unmet Transportation Needs Survey

26 Unmet Transportation Needs Survey Need to get to medical appointments & hospitals 1. Boston medical appointments or hospital trips 2. Brockton VA 3. Fall River hospitals 4. South Shore medical appointments 5. Providence VA Specific locations people could not reach 1. Market Basket in Raynham 2. BCC Campus in Fall River from Taunton 3. Norwell Friendship Home in Norwell 4. Bridgewater State University 5. County Court/Judicial Center in Fall River 6. Industrial Parks in Fall River and Taunton

27 Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) Background Exec. Order 530 signed in 2011 Established Paratransit Commission (Section 1, EO530) Listening sessions held across the state (Section 5, EO530) Released the EO530 report in 2012 Report made recommendations for improving the community transportation system across Massachusetts

28 Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) EO530 highlight areas to improve: Efficient vehicle utilization via commingling and trip coordination Paratransit eligibility, applications, screening, and transfer between RTAs Beyond ADA paratransit: accessible taxis, travel training, and volunteer drivers Removing physical barriers to infrastructure Improving service quality Central repository of information for the traveling public

29 Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) 3 overarching recommendations of the EO530: Establish the Statewide Coordinating Council on Community Transportation (SCCCT) Hire a Statewide Mobility Manager Establish Regional Coordinating Councils (RCCs) That s why we are here today

30 Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) What is the role of the RCC? Provide an open forum for discussion about local unmet needs and framework in which service delivery is initiated Improve core services in the region Provide innovative services and/or new connections to existing services such as travel training or volunteer driver programs

31 Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) Stakeholders on the RCC Regional Transit Authorities (GATRA) Regional Planning Organizations (SRPEDD, OCPC, MAPC) Disability-serving agencies under EOHHS Elder Affairs ADRCs, AAAs, COAs MA Office of Disability Veterans Services Labor and Workforce Development One Stop Career Centers and WIBs

32 Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) RCC formation & first steps Hold a planning meeting with key stakeholders (April 2014) Establish officers for the RCC and meeting dates Present full results of Unmet Transportation Needs Survey (from February 2014) Identify local needs and gaps in service Identify first project(s)

33 Transportation Finance Bill Requires RTAs to prepare Comprehensive Regional Transit Plans (Section 11) Establish Study Advisory Committee: Local employers Business associations Employment centers Labor organizations RTA riders

34 Goals of the Study Advisory Committee Overarching regional transportation planning & objectives Needs identification Strategic planning Current service evaluation

35 GATRA s Role Moving Forward Lead multi-agency coordination on the regional level to identify unmet needs and gaps in service Improve coordination between RTAs to maximize connectivity between systems Identify opportunities for route restructuring Expand Mobility Management efforts (Ride Match, travel training) Make adjustment to services based on rider and community needs

36 Open Discussion of Challenges Discussion starters: Is the overall need for transportation increasing? Do we need expanded night and weekend hours? Do transit routes in different regions need to link up? Is there a lack of long-distance medical transportation in certain towns (i.e. Carver and Lakeville) Do we need more direct routes between cities in Southeastern MA (i.e. Attleboro to Fall River, or, New Bedford; Taunton to Brockton) Do we need more designated bus stops along routes (homeless shelters; mobile home parks) Do we need to improve Paratransit/Demand Response (Curb-tocurb) transportation
