The Denver Regional Mobility and Access Council (DRMAC) was established in 2005 to address the specialized transportation needs for citizens of the greater Denver metro area. Our mission is to reduce barriers to mobility and access in the Denver metro region by fostering interagency and organization collaboration.
Through active collaboration, DRMAC seeks to coordinate and bring together transportation providers and human services agencies to maximize efficiencies of scale, provide access to specialized transportation for each citizen who requires it and to improve the overall specialized transportation system.
DRMAC is the facilitation body who brings specialized transportation providers together for the good of all… riders, providers and benefactors.
In 2000, LSCOG formed a Regional Transit Management Association (RTMA). This Association operates under the umbrella of the LSCOG, which is designated by SCDOT as a regional transportation coordination demonstration project. The RTMA consists of a Policy Committee comprised of one elected county official from each county. This Policy Committee makes recommendations to the LSCOG Board on the prioritization and disbursement of funds for transit related plans, programs and projects. The RTMA has been successful in forming a regional drug testing consortium, developing a regional strategic coordination plan, and developing a mobility management program through which consumers can be directed to the most efficient transit options. Future plans include an implementation of a mobility information, assistance and management center to serve the Lower Savannah region.
MEAAA is able to provide this service to the senior residents of St. Charles County in part thanks to a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) through the City of O’Fallon, MO which is one of many communities in St. Charles County that we serve.
Eligible clients must be 62 years of age and older (due to CDBG requirements), reside in St. Charles County, be living independently in a single family dwelling or apartment (we do not serve individuals living in assisted living, rehab, or nursing facilities), be a non-driver or lack access to a vehicle, and be able to get in and out of a vehicle with little or no assistance. We do not have wheelchair accessible vehicles through this program so we are unable to provide rides to anyone using a wheelchair but our agency contracts with OATS, Inc. for additional transportation services and they do have wheelchair accessible vehicles so we refer appropriate callers to that program.
