As part of the 2018 Coordinated Plan update, SANDAG completed the long-term Specialized Transportation Strategic Plan to address the increasing specialized service needs of seniors and persons with disabilities. This Plan was identified as a Near-Term Action for implementation in San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan.

Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan

The Coordinated Plan combines the regional requirement for a Short-Range Transit Plan with the federal requirement for a Coordinated Plan into one planning document.

The Coordinated Plan identifies the transportation needs of seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income persons; evaluates regional transit services; assesses available social services transportation; and establishes strategies to fill transportation gaps and meet the identified unmet transportation needs of transportation disadvantaged population groups.

Specialized Transportation Grant Program

The SANDAG Specialized Transportation Grant Program (STGP) funds projects and programs that expand mobility options for seniors and individuals with disabilities.

Funding for the STGP comes from two sources: the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 program and the TransNet Senior Mini-Grant program.

Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, purchase of accessible vans and buses, coordinated volunteer driver programs, shopping shuttle services, non-emergency medical trips, and transit travel training classes.

Approximately every two years, SANDAG conducts a competitive process to award funding to eligible programs and projects.
