MassDOT’s Rail & Transit Division in partnership with MassMobility is hosting the annual Massachusetts Community Transportation Coordination Conference on Tuesday, May 5 in Marlborough.
MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack will deliver the keynote address outlining MassDOT’s vision for coordinated transportation.

The annual statewide coordination conference began in 2009. This year, attendance is expected to double when compared to 2014, indicating a growing interest in improving mobility and access for seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals statewide.

MassMobility, an initiative of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services’ Human Service Transportation Office, hosts the annual conference along with the MassDOT Rail & Transit Division Mobility Management Center.

Attendees include staff members from Regional Transit Authorities, consumers from the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission and other state agencies, Council on Aging staff, regional planners, transportation providers, and advocates. Many are active participants in the Regional Coordinating Councils on community transportation supported by MassMobility and MassDOT. The councils bring stakeholders together to share information about transportation options, identify key regional needs, and collaborate to improve mobility.

Discussion topics and presentations at the conference are scheduled to focus on funding, advocacy, and specific strategies for increasing mobility, such as teaching people how to ride transit independently, employment transportation services in rural areas, and promoting older driver safety.

In addition to Secretary Pollack’s keynote address, MassDOT Rail & Transit Division Deputy Director Mike Lambert and Executive Office of Health and Human Services Assistance Secretary Alda Rego will address the group.
