A strategy outlined in the MAG Human Services Coordination Transportation Plan is the utilization of sub-regional mobility managers to enhance and promote regional mobility coordination planning efforts in the region. This has included identifying sub-regional mobility managers as community liaisons for the East Valley, West Valley, and the Central Area of the MAG region. The sub-regional mobility managers participate in designated workgroups, provide feedback on trainings, and provide support for regional coordination strategies outlined in the MAG Human Services Coordination Transportation Plan.


Vehicle Sharing

 

Vehicle sharing is a unique program that involves vehicles acquired through a federal grant program. Agencies share an accessible vehicle that enables people with disabilities to get out of their homes. Many social services say that a major challenge they face is a lack of transportation as public transit options may not be the best fit.
