Transit Coordination Plan: User Survey
We are currently seeking input from seniors and individuals with disabilities on their transportation needs. The Ozarks Transportation Organization (OTO) has funds available to help organizations, such as OATS, purchase vehicles used to assist seniors and individuals with disabilities, and to help organizations, like City Utilities Transit, make ADA improvements. Your input will help ensure these funds are spent in the best way possible.

City Utilities is responsible for providing fixed route and paratransit public transit service to the City of Springfield. The other Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) jurisdictions are only served by a number of paratransit services.
Missouri State University also provides transit services to their students through shuttles called the Bear Line Shuttle. These shuttles run every 5 to 8 minutes with a variety of stops on the main MSU campus and downtown Springfield.
City Utilities is the designated recipient of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds. These funds for the MPO area include Section 5307 Urbanized Area Funds, Section 5309 Capital Investment grant and loan, Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities funds and Section 5339 Bus and Bus facility Formula.
The MPO has the responsibility of producing several planning documents as related to federal requirements included in MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century).
