MassMobility, in partnership with MassDOT Rail and Transit, hosted the Massachusetts Community Transportation Coordination Conference on May 5, 2015 in Marlborough. This annual conference is an opportunity for transportation providers, human service agency staff, and advocates to come together to hear presentations on best practices and connect with peers around the state.
This year, 136 people attended the conference, more than double last year’s numbers – indicating a growing interest in improving mobility and access for seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals statewide. Statewide coordination meetings have occurred every year since 2009.
