Grants to Ontario, Canada municipalities collaborating with at least one community organization to plan and implement local transportation projects designed to increase mobility for the elderly and handicapped who do not have their own means of transportation.

The objectives of the CT Program are to:

• Improve mobility options for individuals who do not have access to their own transportation, including seniors, people with disabilities, and others;

• Build capacity to better meet local transportation demand, particularly where it is challenging or not feasible to provide conventional or specialized transit service due to population size or density; and

• Create networks of coordinated community transportation service that leverages existing services and pools resources to provide more rides to more people and to more destinations.

In general, coordinated community transportation is a service delivery model whereby two or more organizations collaborate through the sharing and/or coordination of transportation resources and services to jointly accomplish their transportation objectives.

To be considered for funding, a coordinated community transportation project must:
• Meet the objectives of the CT Program.
• Result in the improvement of transportation services through the implementation of new or enhancements to existing coordinated community transportation services, within one year of the effective date of the Agreement.
