Goal 5: Advance accessible intercity transportation systems

Strenthening Rural transit options

Rural transit options would require that FTA,DOT Congress designate a rural or frontier category. My idea would impact FTA because it would encourage coordination among state transit planning providers to designate urban , small urbans ,and county hubs . To cut down on passenger share of the intercity city trip costs can we advocate for a transit trip voucher similar to HUD section 8 Give incentive s to rural providers to provide / and drive those accessible miles. Make funding options available to support Disability Access on Essential Air and Rail and Intercity bus services.
