A multipronged marketing strategy will inform the public of the new services.

Award amount: $603,512

Current status: This project is complete. The program was well-received. It allowed the introduction of technology improvements to make the transit systems more efficient and forged new relationships between the counties and agencies that serve veterans and/or provide transportation.
