The Transportation Coalition was established in 2005 to begin to recognize the gaps in public transportation and pull together providers to identify strategies to eliminate these gaps.
To increase the awareness of transportation issues and improve public transportation in Livingston County.
1. Increase the availability of public transportation through:
a. Increased hours of operation
b. Increased service on evenings and weekends
c. Increased coordination with service providers in neighboring counties
2. Increase the understanding of transportation needs, issues,
and assets by community members, service providers, and decision makers
3. Conduct a feasibility study to determine the specific transportation needs in the community
4. Maintain a viable community coalition that includes substantial involvement by consumers and transportation users

The Coalition is far more that a collection of organizations that meets monthly to discuss issues. Members are active in advancing and even providing transportation in the county. Members will continue this active collaboration to complete the proposed project through the coordination of the chair, Dr. Leo Hanifin.
Join the Coalition
The Coalition meets 2nd Tuesday from 3-4:30 at the LESA Building (1425 W. Grant River) in Howell.
Please contact email@example.com for a list of current members.
Success of the Transportation Coalition depends upon the ongoing commitment of Livingston County Organizations, officials, local government and residents to develop a county-wide plan for transportation. Members are required to demonstrate their commitment, but signing a membership agreement on behalf of themselves and their organizations.
