Access to Community Transportation Services for Individuals with Disabilities

Abstract: 

Between 2001 and 2004, Maine conducted the Quality Choices for Maine project. This project was supported by a three year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to improve services for people with disabilities. This grant was part of the Real Choice Systems Change Initiative funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Access to Services was one of four major areas of focus for the Quality Choices for Maine project. This report focuses on the work related to Access to Services, and specifically the development of increased access to community transportation services for individuals with disabilities in Maine. The report includes a summary of grant activity, lessons learned throughout the project, and recommendations for next steps to sustain the work of this grant. The specific goal related to the Access to Transportation Services project was to make transportation more available and responsive to persons with disabilities.
