Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) Administrator Thomas S. Cahir, joined by MassDOT Secretary Jeff Mullan and Rail & Transit Administrator and MBTA General Manager Richard A. Davey, today presented a State Mobility Assistance Program vehicle to the Bourne Council on Aging.
The Federal Transit Administration awarded the CCRTA a grant covering 80% of the cost of vans for Cape Cod Councils on Aging, with the MassDOT Mobility Assistance Program funding the remaining 20%. The fully-accessible equipment provides transportation of elders and individuals with disabilities at no direct cost to the senior population.
The CCRTA as grant recipient will ensure that the vehicle is maintained.
The Mobility Assistance Program provides capital assistance to public agencies for the purchase of vehicles and related equipment to be used in the provision of transportation services to the elderly, persons with disabilities, and families transitioning from public assistance to employment for whom existing public and/or private mass transportation is unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate.
