A strategy outlined in the MAG Human Services Coordination Transportation Plan is the utilization of subregional mobility managers to enhance and promote regional mobility coordination planning efforts in the region. This has included identifying subregional mobility managers as community liaisons for the North Valley, East Valley, West Valley, and the Central area of the MAG region.

Current Subregional Mobility Managers

Subregional mobility managers participate in designated workgroups, provide feedback on the brown bag trainings, and provide support for regional coordination strategies outlined in the MAG HSCTP. The current sub-regional mobility managers are listed above.


Vehicle Sharing

Vehicle sharing is a unique program that involves vehicles acquired through a federal grant program. Agencies share an accessible vehicle that enables people with disabilities to get out of their homes. Many social services say that a major challenge they face is a lack of transportation as public transit options may not be the best fit.
