FLORIDA'S TRANSPORTATION DISADVANTAGED COMMISSION: A MODEL FOR CHANGING TIMES

When Florida's human service agencies began to tackle the issue of coordination in the mid 1970s, little did they know that their efforts would one day result in a Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged and more than $157 million in coordinated transportation funds. In Florida, coordination means arranging for the provision of cost-effective, non-duplicative transportation to people with disabilities, the elderly, low-income individuals and children-at-risk. Last year, the Commission helped provide more than 28 million trips, all the while reducing costs and ensuring efficiency.
