Rural General Public Transportation -This program provides administration, capital, planning, and operating assistance to support public transportation in rural communities to increase the mobility of elderly and disabled persons, especially those persons not served by a specific program or agency. The transit program is tailored to coordinate the provision of specialized transportation sources within communities; and to maximize program participation by private sector service providers.

Rural transportation services more broadly support well-being for rural residents by also providing transportation to employment, schools, places of worship, and social and recreational destinations. Access to public transportation in rural areas is limited by travel times and distances, frequency of service, cost and limitations in funding to address these changes.

The program aims to improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities by removing barriers to transportation service and expanding transportation mobility options. This program supports transportation services planned, designed, and carried out to meet the special transportation needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities in all areas.
