MassMobility, in partnership with MassDOT Rail and Transit, hosted the Massachusetts Community Transportation Coordination Conference on May 3, 2016 in Worcester. 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, 183 people attended the conference, up from 136 last year, indicating that interest continues to grow in improving mobility and access for seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals statewide. Statewide coordination meetings have occurred every year since 2009.
