NYSAMM responds to FTA Request for Information on Rural Infrastructure.
NYSAMM (New York State Association for Mobility Management) primarily represents rural and small urban community transportation efforts within New York State. A call to action for a collaborative response was sent to our board and all interested mobility practitioners via project management software, Basecamp. The comments attached represent the collective experience of rural mobility professionals in New York State.
About the Project
Move Together NY’s (MTNY) primary goal is to improve transportation access to health care and employment, particularly in rural areas, where cross county travel is required. We do this largely by gathering information and input from a wide range of stakeholders, identifying gaps, common problems, and strategizing to create collaborative, regionally focused transportation solutions.
For more information about the project and work completed this far, visit our Project Status Page.
The Move Together Project grew out of the Regional Transportation Study, which was carried out in 2013, to develop a deeper regional understanding of existing transportation options and unmet needs.
The core Move Together NY Counties were based on a 2013 Regional Transportation Study. Currently, our active partnering counties are Chemung, Cortland, Schuyler, Steuben and Tioga Counties.
Based on interest from partners in nearby counties, and the location of important regional medical centers, the Move Together project also collaborates with partners in:
Monroe, Seneca, Cayuga, Broome, Onondaga, Chenango, Otsego and Delaware Counties.
