The purpose of locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plans (coordinated plans) is to identify community resources for transportation and mobility, understand the gaps and unmet needs within those resources, and to determine the approach to addressing those gaps and unmet needs.  Federal law requires these plans to be developed and approved through a process that includes participation by seniors, individuals with disabilities, representatives of public, private, and nonprofit transportation and human services providers and other members of the public.

The information provided on this site must be read in conjunction with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) official guidance related to coordinated plans, which is contained in Chapter V of the Circular FTA C 9070.1G "Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program guidance and Application Instructions".

ODOT does not require any entity to produce a Coordinated Plans, but for small urban and rural areas of Ohio, ODOT makes 5310 project selections; therefore ODOT must ensure that projects' underlying Coordinated Plans are in compliance with Federal transit law.  ODOT encourages coordinated plans that go beyond the requirements of Section 5310 funding to include analysis of needs and development projects to address the mobility needs of the general public.

ODOT has developed the following resources to assist lead agencies in the development of the plans. 

    • This template is an editable document for lead agencies to use to ensure that all required plan element are included in the coordinated plan.  ODOT makes Section 5310 project selections for rural and small urban areas.  In order to be eligible for projects selection by ODOT, the project needs to be listed in a coordinated plan that is on this template and follows ODOT's coordinated plan guidance.
