The CCAM recognizes that transportation can be the major obstacle for people with disabilities, older adults, children and youth, and other populations that need various social and health services. Interagency partnerships are essential to coordinate travel needs to help increase the quality of life for these populations as well as for agencies to provide their services effectively and efficiently. This database is designed to provide case study information of useful practices identified to be highly effective in meeting three service provision goals: increased efficiency, simplified access, and reduced duplication. Each agency that submits information to this database should meet one or more elements of the criteria defining Useful Practice: progress through working together; planning for community needs; putting customers first; adapting funding; and moving people efficiently (see Help for definitions of each of the elements of these five criteria). The goal of this web page is to collect and share information about the most successful case studies of agencies that implemented projects meeting useful practices criteria. These case studies are examples of practices that have been implemented and are successful in improving transportation services for target populations to help them access needed services more quickly, efficiently, and easily. It is the sincere hope of the CCAM and contributors to this project that practitioners will be able to search this website for ideas that they may use in their own communities to meet the same goals.
