The overall mission of Florida’s transportation disadvantaged program is to ensure the availability of efficient, cost-effective, and quality transportation services for transportation disadvantaged persons. The Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged selected the Health Council of South Florida to serve as the Designated Official Planning Agency (DOPA) for Monroe County’s transportation disadvantaged program at the Commission for Transportation Disadvantaged (CTD) meeting of April 22, 1993.  During that year, the Local Coordinating Board (LCB) was established, an orientation session was held, by-laws were adopted, and a grievance committee was created.  At that time, DOPA also began work on the development of a five-year Comprehensive Transportation Disadvantaged Plan (CTDP) for the county, and the LCB began the process of selecting a Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC).


The DOPA’s purpose is to plan for the needs of Monroe County’s transportation disadvantaged citizens, and assist in the implementation of the transportation disadvantaged program within a designated service area. The Council must also ensure that memberships on the Local Coordinating Board (LCB) are filled and represents, to the maximum degree possible, a cross section of the local community.

The Local Coordinating Board (LCB) identifies local service needs and provides information, advice, and direction on the coordination of services to be provided to the transportation disadvantaged. Also, the LCB reviews the amount and quality of service being provided to the County’s transportation disadvantaged population. The LCB meets on a quarterly basis in Marathon, Florida and holds at least one public hearing a year. The purpose of the hearings is to provide input to the LCB on unmet needs or any other areas relating to local transportation services.
