8 What it means to be a regional transportation provider Business – Economies of scale – The volume of trips allow the draw down of additional Federal funding – Larger pool of manpower resources – Larger pool of vehicles to schedule and dispatch – Consolidated call center and dispatch operation – Successful in competitive grant requests

9 Funding for Paratransit ADA 10% of our federal formula funds Funding partners and passenger fares TD 10% local match (collected through passenger fares) 90% Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund Medicaid Agency for Healthcare Administration

10 How funding works in a regional system ADA Based on jurisdiction of each customer’s residence, charge trips to the appropriate County regardless of origin or destination Each jurisdiction pays their fair share TD and Medicaid Provide as many trips as possible, regardless of jurisdiction, with available funding

11 Successes Started as a regional system Increased efficiencies through centralized call center, scheduling and dispatch operations Increased service productivity and service efficiencies Regional system lets customer travel freely within the region with one trip request One provider

12 Challenges The need to provide data by county and urbanized areas Trip distances increase costs Increased deadhead miles due to large service area Jurisdictions need to agree on how the systems is operated All available funding resources need to be part of the coordinated system
