DRMAC’s mission is to promote mobility and access for all by addressing transit needs through public outreach and by coordinating the efforts of government agencies and transit providers.
We care. We care about everyone. We want people to be able to go where they WANT to go as well as where they NEED to go. We want them to be able to do that safely, efficiently, and economically. We are especially involved with older adults, people of low income, and people with disabilities; those who are often transit dependent.
With that basis, our staff and Board of Directors work from a four pronged approach: advocacy, coordination, education, and information.
We continually reach out into the community to offer our services. We are the Regional Coordinating Council and as such bring the community together. We facilitate Local Coordinating Councils in each of our area’s counties for transportation providers, users, and advocates to come together. We participate in and advocate with a wide variety of the region’s work groups, task forces, and committees, on human services and transportation needs and futures.
We partner with other human service agencies to offer a variety of trainings – on how to ride transit, how to qualify for assisted ride services, and how to work with riders who have disabilities. We offer instructional classes to riders, service providers and transportation agencies. We educate community organizations on opportunities and transit gaps. We bring agencies to the table to discuss who is doing what and how they can collaborate. Our monthly, quarterly, local, and regional meetings have presenters on many fields related to transportation and mobility.
DRMAC is, and will continue to be, the bridge between multimodal transit users, transit providers, human services, local agencies, transit advocates, and the general public. We thank you for your interest, and hope that we can help you get to where you want to go.
