TRANSPORTATION FOR SENIORS AND HANDICAPPED PERSONS IN ROCKLAND COUNTY

The objective of the report is to develop a precise description of the transportation problems of the handicapped and elderly in Rockland County, N.Y., and to formulate an operational solution to these problems. The essence of the statement of work scope is that a joint Federal-local, multi-agency approach should be used to develop the transportation facilities deemed necessary as a result of this planning study. Key elements to the work statement are data gathering and analysis, system design sketch, support plan and implementation plan. Some of the major problems facing the elderly and handicapped are delineated. A system design plan incorporating some of the following elements has been developed: establishment of a County office responsible for all transportation activities; development of a 'Council of Agencies' to coordinate agency needs, including transportation; appointment of a Policy Advisory Committee drawn form the agencies, government, target group and employers; 'Purchase of Service' agreements between agencies and the centralized transit operation to provide target group activities; and recommendation of Federal funding for three major purposes.
