The Governor created the State Coordinating Committee for Human Services Transportation in October 1997 (Executive Order 01.01.1997.06). It was reconstituted in September 2006 and again in April 2010 (Executive Order 01.01.2006.09; Executive Order 01.01.2010.10).
The Committee examines and plans for the transportation needs of the elderly, the disabled, and those who need affordable, accessible transportation to get to work, job training, and education programs.
To ensure Marylanders continued access to education, health care, jobs, senior citizen activities, and training, the Committee prepares a five-year plan for human services transportation. The Committee also coordinates the efforts and resources of federal, State and local agencies; serves as a clearinghouse for transportation issues; and investigates the need for standards for vehicles and drivers. In addition, the Committee participates in planning for the allocation of human services transportation resources for emergency evacuations.
