Overview.The Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board (LCB) was established to identify local service needs and provide information, advice, and direction to the Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC) on the coordination of services to be provided to the transportation disadvantaged through the Florida Association of Coordinated Transportation System (FACTS), as required by Chapter 427, Florida Statutes.
The Miami-Dade MPO is designated pursuant to Chapter 427, Florida Statutes by the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged as the “planning agency” that oversees the CTC’s activities. Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) has been the CTC for Miami-Dade County since 1990.
MDT is the main source of public transportation in Miami-Dade County and provides non-emergency special transportation for ambulatory and non-ambulatory clients. The service operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
The agency has contracted successfully with agencies such as the Agency for Health Care Administration (Medicaid), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Miami-Dade Community Action Agency (CAA), Easter Seal Society, the Department for Human Resources and the Florida Department of Children and Families Services and has worked cooperatively with the local WAGES Coalition to provide transportation services for WAGES participants.
The LCB’s main objectives are:
The Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged establishes the composition of the membership for the LCBs. Members of the LCB are appointed by the MPO Governing Board.
