Coordinated Public Transit -
Human Services Transportation Plan
The Coordinated Plan
Beginning in 2007, all Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO’s) and Councils of Governments (COG’s) in Arizona are required to adopt and update a Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan), which
Inventories existing transportation services for elderly individuals, individuals with disabilities, and low-income individuals
Identifies unmet transportation needs, and
Prioritizes strategies for improving coordination to meet those needs.
In the Flagstaff area, the coordinated plan is jointly prepared by the MetroPlan (Flagstaff Metropolitan Planning Organization) and Mountain Line. For the remainder of northern Arizona, the Northern Arizona Council of Governments (NACOG) is responsible for the coordinated plan.
The most-recent Coordinated Plan for the region was approved by the MetroPlan Executive Board on March 3, 2021, and by the NAIPTA Board of Directors on April 21, 2021.
