The recently passed SAFETEA-LU requires the preparation of local coordinated
plans for all public and human service transportation programs funded through
KDOT. Applicants for KDOT’s public transportation grant program are required
to participate in the process

What is a coordinated plan?
A coordinated plan:
- Is a unified, comprehensive strategy for public transportation service delivery;
- Must identify the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities,
older adults, and individuals with limited incomes;
- Will lay out strategies for meeting those needs; and
- Must prioritize services
Who will be the lead agency that ensures a plan is prepared?
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has designated the Coordinated
Transit Districts (CTDs) as the lead agencies to develop coordinated plans for
their areas. The KDOT Program Consultant assigned to the CTD and the KU Transportation
Center will provide facilitation and technical assistance, as needed.
How to use this toolkit?
There are five different elements of a coordinated plan. Two elements or steps
must be completed prior to the planning meeting, while steps three and four
are completed during the meeting. The final step is to implement the plan. Materials developed for each CTD are available by clicking on the link "Coordinated CTD Plans" above, or by clicking here.
