Coordinated Human Services / Section 5310

East-West Gateway (EWG) conducts coordinated human services transportation planning for the St. Louis region.  As part of this planning, EWG develops the Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan (CHSTP) which is a regional planning tool designed to help guide the investment of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) funding.  EWG’s CHSTP was updated and approved by EWG’s Board of Directors on May 27, 2020,  in accordance with federal requirements.  The CHSTP seeks to improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities by assessing existing transportation services in the region, identifying gaps in the system, and prioritizing strategies to address those gaps.

Per FTA requirements, the CHSTP must be updated at least every four years. Between August 2019 and January 2020, EWG organized a variety of engagement activities to develop the updated plan. This included circulating surveys and convening a Stakeholder Committee of local transportation providers and human service agencies to help identify gaps and unmet needs and generate strategies to address those gaps.
