(Neb.)-State Management Plan For Public Transportation For Rural Areas Available For Review

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 11/10/2012 08:41 AM

The State Management Plan (SMP) is a document which describes the state’s policies and procedures for administering the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Section 5311 program of transit assistance for rural areas, Section 5311(f) intercity bus program, Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP), and Section 5310 capital assistance program for Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities.

 While the objectives of these programs may differ, all complement each other and the overall goal to provide accessible public transportation in rural and small urban areas.

The SMP is intended to facilitate both state management and FTA oversight by documenting the state’s procedures and policies for administering these programs in a single reference.

The public comment period begins October 24 and ends at close of business November 30, 2012. The first set of public comments will be incorporated into a final draft document which will be posted on the NDOR website for additional comments at a later date.

Comments should be sent via email to: dor.transit@nebraska.gov, or by regular mail to: Jerry Wray, Transit Liaison Manager, NDOR Rail & Public Transportation, PO Box 94759, Lincoln, NE 68509-4759. #NDOR# Contact: Jerry Wray, (402) 479-4694
