The Maryland State and Regional Coordinated Transportation Plan for SAFETEA-LU (Coordination Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan 2007) (Plan) is a direct result of the President signing into law the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) legislation in August 2005 that provides funding for highway and transit programs. SAFETEA-LU funding includes Section 5310 (Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities), Section 5316 (Job Access and Reverse Commute – JARC), and Section 5317 (New Freedom) programs.
On March 29, 2007, FTA issued circulars with guidance with an effective date of May 1, 2007. The final guidance noted that all grant funds obligated in Federal FY2008 must be in full compliance with the requirements of the circulars and coordinated plan requirements. In preparation of meeting the requirements, on February 28, 2007, the MTA and Shore Transit hosted a regional forum. As a result of the forum, the Lower Eastern Shore Regional Coordinated Planning Committee was established. To review the 2007 Plan, please go to the Coordination Plan 2007 link listed below.
In July of 2010, the MTA communicated the implementation plan for the updating of the Shore Transit Coordinated Public-Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan of 2007(Plan).
