Coordination between transportation providers and service agencies is a strategy that can help fill transportation gaps by providing more rides using the same or fewer resources, making transportation easier to use and giving customers more options of where and when to travel.

MCOTA agencies are developing organizations to facilitate coordination at a local level through two types of organizations:

  1. Regional Transportation Coordinating Councils (RTCCs) in Greater Minnesota, and
  2. Transit Coordination Assistance Projects (TCAPs) in the Twin Cities' counties.

Both types of organizations consist of local stakeholders interested in improving mobility for the "transportation disadvantaged" – older adults, individuals with disabilities, individuals with low incomes and/or military veterans.
