Overview

The Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) is a federal interagency council that works to coordinate funding and provide expertise on human services transportation. The CCAM focuses on programs for three targeted populations: people with disabilities, older adults, and individuals of low income.

The CCAM works to improve federal coordination of transportation resources and address barriers faced by states and local communities when coordinating transportation. Its mission is to issue policy recommendations and implement activities that improve the availability, accessibility, and efficiency of transportation for CCAM’s targeted populations, with the vision of equal access to coordinated transportation for all people.

The CCAM was established in 2004 by Executive Order 13330: Human Services Transportation Coordination. Human services transportation fosters personal mobility by connecting people to their homes, jobs, education, medical appointments, and all their communities have to offer. Millions of Americans, however, are unable to access reliable transportation services due to a lack of mobility. Gaps in transportation services disproportionately impact people with disabilities, older adults, and individuals of low income, disconnecting them from their communities. The CCAM works to close those gaps and achieve its strategic vision of mobility for all.

CCAM Strategic Plan

On October 27, 2022, the CCAM adopted the 2023–2026 CCAM Strategic Plan. The CCAM hosted a webinar on November 30, 2022, to share the current plan, resource commitments, and implementation strategy.

Coordinated transportation involves multiple entities working together to deliver one or more components of a transportation service with the shared goal of increasing capacity to provide trips. Coordination activities can include sharing passenger trips and vehicles, co-location of facilities, programs or services, collaborating on grant applications, state/local plans, training, vehicle purchasing or maintenance, joint hiring of mobility manager(s), federal fund braiding, and more.
