Morris County Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan (CHSTP)

Principal Investigators: Stephanie DiPetrillo, Andrea Lubin

The updated Morris County Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan (CHSTP) will create an integrated and collaborative framework for providing human services transportation in Morris County. The previous Morris County CHSTP was prepared in 2008 and updated in 2013. Since these efforts, significant advances in mobility management, smartphone technology, and on-demand service delivery models have occurred. This new planning effort, Morris Moves, can help to bring innovative, integrated, and accessible mobility to those who need it most in Morris County. The goal of the plan update is to develop strategies and recommendations to expand and enhance mobility for Morris County residents – especially those traditionally considered transportation disadvantaged including older adults (age 65+), people with disabilities, low-income persons, veterans, and others. This coordinated planning process is a requirement under 49 U.S.C. Section 5310, Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities.
