Universal Reduced Fare Transportation Card

Issue:

There are many barriers to dependable, affordable public transportation for people with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in Michigan.

One barrier is transportation from county to county. In Michigan there are 83 counties, with 81 transit providers delivering transportation services.

In order to travel from county to county, people with I/DD would have to make transportation arrangements ahead of time by filling out a reduced fare card application in the county they want to visit. They would need to be approved before they could get reduced fares in that county, otherwise they would not receive transportation at a reduced rate in that county.
