The Missouri Mobility Management Planning is improving transportation accessibility in more than 18 counties through the work of three regional planning commissions (RPCs), Boonslick RPC, Meramec RPC, and Mid-Missouri RPC. These programs provide access to resources and services for older adults, people with disabilities, and individuals with lower incomes, as well as the general public.

With initial planning funds from the Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council, each RPC conducted a deliberate planning phase and brought together stakeholders to form regional coordinating councils. Although each RPC is implementing separate Mobility Management Programs, all three RPCs have worked to coordinate planning and implementation, with a goal of supporting a statewide program in the future using the MO RIDES referral model established by Boonslick RPC. The Mobility Management programs are funded primarily through Federal Transit Administration grants administered by the Missouri Department of Transportation.

This initiative received a 2015 NADO Innovation Award.  For more information, contact:
