The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Integrated Mobility Division (NCDOT IMD) is seeking public input to develop its draft plan to improve transportation access for seniors and individuals with disabilities in small urban and rural areas.

The plan was created by NCDOT IMD, planning organizations, and public transportation providers. It identifies opportunities to expand mobility options to seniors and individuals with disabilities, particularly in small urban and rural communities. The public’s feedback will help NCDOT IMD develop strategies that give people in need better access to reliable public transportation around the state.

NCDOT IMD will host three virtual workshops in September (see list below) to educate the public and receive input about the draft Statewide Locally Coordinated Plan, which outlines public transportation improvements from 2025-2029.
