The purpose of the regionally coordinated transportation planning effort is to provide more efficient and effective public transportation services, especially for priority populations including individuals with disabilities, individuals 65 and older, people with low incomes, veterans, and children. Texas uses a decentralized, stakeholder-driven approach, with 24 designated planning regions charged with developing and adopting a unique regional transportation plan. Lead agencies, in collaboration with regional stakeholders, develop and include a metric for each identified gap in transportation service or local service priority in the coordinated plan. The purpose of each metric is to measure the extent to which each priority was met or gap filled. Metrics may vary from one planning region to another; however, each region’s metrics should demonstrate that individuals in the region, including persons 65 and older and individuals with disabilities, have improved access to an effective and efficient network of public transportation services. The data on these metrics is reported to TxDOT-PTN, which collects common data elements statewide.
