Comprehensive Transportation Projects

Specialized Transportation

Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan

The  Coordinated Plan   combines the regional requirement for a Short-Range Transit Plan with the federal requirement for a Coordinated Plan into one planning document. The Coordinated Plan identifies the transportation needs of seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income persons; evaluates regional transit services; assesses available social services transportation; and establishes strategies to fill transportation gaps and meet the identified unmet transportation needs of transportation disadvantaged population groups. As part of the 2018 Coordinated Plan update, SANDAG completed the long-term  Specialized Transportation Strategic Plan  to address the increasing specialized service needs of seniors and persons with disabilities

Consolidated Transportation Services Agency

SANDAG has a contract with Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation, Inc. (FACT) to perform the duties of a Consolidated Transportation Services Agency (CTSA). The CTSA is responsible for the coordination of specialized transportation within the San Diego region.
