A Study Conducted for Multnomah County Developmentally Disabled Program and Multnomah County Aging Services Division.
Social service -- Contracting out, Transportation -- Oregon, People with disabilities -- Transportation -- Oregon, Urban transportation -- Oregon
The Multnomah County Aging Services Division (ASD) and the tri-county developmentally disabled programs provide transportation services for their elderly and handicapped clients primarily by contracting with TRI-MET, the regional transit district. This system is strained because the demands for transportation services are increasing, the cost of contracted services exceeds the county's transportation funds, the quality of service does not meet all clients' needs, and TRI-MET has been spending less of its primary funding sources on elderly and handicapped transportation. The county therefore contracted with the Center for Urban Studies of Portland State University, to examine the current provision of transportation services and to make recommendations for future actions.
