The Coordinated Public Transit and Human Services Transportation Plan for Southeast NH Region was developed by the Rockingham and Strafford Metropolitan Planning Organizations with guidance from the Southeast NH Regional Coordination Council for Community Transportation. According to the Federal Transit Administration, the purpose of coordination is to improve transportation services for persons with disabilities, older adults and individuals with lower incomes. This is accomplished by ensuring that federal grantees coordinate transportation resources under multiple existing federal programs. Coordination efforts can enhance access, minimize duplication of services, and facilitate appropriate cost-effective services.In addition to serving as the guiding planning document for the Southeast NH Regional Coordination Council, the Coordinated Plan has been adopted by each Metropolitan Planning Organization as part of its METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION PLAN in response to federal requirements in the 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act – A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU).
