Strategy & Paper Checklist

For Communities on Addressing the Needs of Transportation Dependent Populations During an Emergency

The U.S. Department of Transportation is pleased to announce the implementation of a strategy paper and checklist for communities that provide an overview of the importance of planning for the transportation of individuals that require assistance during an emergency. These documents also include specific strategies that communities have employed to facilitate safe and appropriate transportation, and challenges that remain to improving transportation for these populations in the event of an emergency situation. These documents were developed in conjunction with the National Consortium on the Coordination of Human Service Transportation.
