Public Transit Planning

Public transportation contributes to quality of life in rural and urban communities alike by providing economical alternatives for those driving alone or by expanding travel choices of those without access to a car.

AMMA’s transit service plans always seek to balance improved effectiveness and efficiencies with responsiveness to consumers’ travel needs.   With an emphasis on paratransit service planning, policy and procedure, AMMA works towards the effective integration of transportation modes that extend riders’ mobility.
