The availability of dependable transportation plays a critical role in everyone’s life and should be easy to access.
Many state, county and local organizations provide some type of transportation assistance for the people they serve. These programs and services tend to be program-specific, with different eligibility requirements and funding sources. The result of this is that access to transportation is fragmented.
Many people who try to schedule transportation for themselves, a friend or family member find it takes more than one phone call and they must navigate through a confusing myriad of restrictions.
Challenged by the status quo, several state and regional agencies have joined forces to form the Transportation Partnership of Ohio, a nonprofit, community service organization dedicated to linking accessible, responsive transportation with community needs.
The Transportation Partnership’s main purpose is to break down, work around, or overcome barriers to transportation and to work together to remove roadblocks that prevent customers from getting the transportation they need.
