Livingston County will be closed on Monday, May 27th in honor of Memorial Day.

The Livingston County Transportation Coalition (LCTC) is the local body approved by Livingston County Human Services Collaborative Body to coordinate and oversee the health and human service transportation needs of the community. It has been the steward of the county wide Coordinated Transportation Plan for more than 15 years and has been honored via proclamation by the County Commissioners on multiple occasions. LCTC formally meets monthly (excluding one summer month) and utilizes consensus voting where each member’s vote has the same voice and weight as any other member.

The Transportation Coalition was established in 2005 to begin to recognize the gaps in public transportation and pull together providers to identify strategies to eliminate these gaps. The work this group carries out involves the full gamut of transportation including but not limited to buses, ride-sharing, cabs, Lyft, Uber, bike,  pedestrian-friendly options as well. All with a mind for inclusiveness and accessibility for all.

The Coalition meets on the 4th Tuesday of every other month from 3-4:30 p.m. via the Zoom app. Email ajohnston@cmhliv.org if you would like to attend.

Goal

To increase the awareness of transportation issues and improve multi modal public transportation in Livingston County.  Furthermore, to implement the Livingston County Transportation Master Plan.

Values

The values below are the fundamental, strategically sound beliefs of a broad coalition of stakeholders, the Livingston County Transportation Coalition.  These are divided between:

  • Core values: Those values that are deeply ingrained in the coalition that guide all of the coalition’s decision and actions.
  • Aspirational values: Those values that a coalition needs to succeed in attaining the future transportation vision of the coalition.

Core Values

  • The coalition should always reflect and promote the value of public transportation and work towards goals that improve the quality of life for the community.
  • The coalition will always act with honesty, integrity and transparency.
  • The coalition will be proactive in advocating for ever improving public transportation services in Livingston County.

Aspirational Values

All future transportation investments and services should:

  • Be guided by systematic, rigorous planning towards a comprehensive, multimodal, integrated and efficient system.
  • Reflect preferential service to the transit dependent residents, workers and visitors (vulnerable citizens).
  • Provide equitable opportunity to access community resources.
  • Reflect a balance of value to business and consumers.
  • Be affordable and sustainable.
  • Assure that all modes of transportation are safe.
  • Be implemented through phased growth that minimizes risk and maximizes value.
  • Incorporate innovative solutions, including those driven by technology and supported, where applicable, by multiple transportation providers and public-private partnerships.
  • Improve the environmental impacts of transportation in and around our county.

The processes to define and develop improved options for public transportation should:

  • Involve collaboration of a diverse array of all stakeholders engaged through civility and thoughtful discussion.
  • Lead to data and citizen driven decisions.
  • Amplify the voice of need over the voice of control.

Objectives

  • Increase the availability of public transportation through:
    • Increased service on evenings and weekends
    • Increased coordination with service providers in neighboring counties
    • Increase transportation options for all, no matter their hardships or handicaps.
  • Increase the understanding of transportation needs, issues, and assets by community members, service providers, and decision makers.
  • Ensure that riders and the public know that public transportation is safe to use with proper COVID-19 protocols in place.
  • Become more knowledgeable about all modes of transportation, motorized and nonmotorized alike.
  • Maintain a viable community coalition that includes substantial involvement by consumers and transportation users.
  • Reevaluate the needs of our community, consumers, and riders to focus attention on the priorities that truly matter.

Partnership

The success of the Transportation Coalition depends upon the ongoing commitment of Livingston County Organizations, officials, local government, and residents to develop a county-wide plan for transportation. Members are required to demonstrate their commitment on behalf of themselves and their organizations. Below are the organizations represented on the Steering Committee.
