The Lifeline Program supports community-based transportation projects that:

  • Are developed through a collaborative and inclusive planning process that includes broad partnerships among a variety of stakeholders such as public agencies, community-based organizations and community stakeholders, and outreach to underrepresented stakeholders.
  • Address transportation gaps and/or barriers identified through a Community-Based Transportation Plan, or are otherwise based on a documented statement of needs within the designated communities of concern.
  • Improve a range of transportation choices by adding a variety of new or expanded services including but not limited to: enhanced fixed route transit services, shuttles, children?s programs, taxi voucher programs, improved access to autos, capital improvement projects. Transportation needs specific to elderly and disabled residents of low-income communities will also be considered when funding new programs.
