Community Transportation Network
“Thank you for helping me find transportation and other resources for my aunt…My aunt and I are very appreciative of your exceptional thoroughness and helpfulness.”
Seniors and persons with disabilities have problems getting where they need to go. To address gaps in transportation in the Greater Dallas Area, the Community Council and the Dallas Area Agency on Aging launched the Community Transportation Network (CTN) in June 2009. More than 90 organizations—public, private, non-profit and faith-based groups—are working together to remove barriers and create options for people who do not drive.
The Metro Mobility Summary, presented here, examines the unique transportation needs of aging and disability populations in Dallas County.
