Both the federal and state programs are designed to meet the transportation needs of elderly persons, persons with disabilities, and the general public.

NEW - Kansas Group TAM Plan available for review and comment

Thank you all for assisting in getting the data submitted so that we can submit the first Group Transit Asset Management (TAM) Plan.  We would appreciate it if you could take a look at this draft  and let us know if you have any comments, shoot me an email at mike.spadafore@ks.gov no later than September 26, 2018.  Our Group Plan must be submitted to FTA by October 1, 2018.  (please note: Only 5311 program agencies and vehicles are included at this time.  This may change in future years based on guidance from FTA and KDOT's use of the Plan's analyses.)

NEW - 5310/5311 Application period to open soon

It is that time of year again!  We've made minimal changes to the application documents and as such, have decided to release them to you before the application period officially begins.  They're in Black Cat in the usual place for 2020 applications.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take the time you need to truly develop your budgets and request to cover all your expenses as well as funds that will cover expansions (personnel or vehicles) in the next year.  We will be sticking to the award amounts and will not be processing supplemental agreements at this time.  If you have questions about the process or documents, please contact Scott Lein at scott.lein@ks.gov or 785.368.7091.

NEW - Getting Everyone to Everywhere video now available

We're very pleased to release the video that I showed at the Transit presentation for the Legislative Task Force.  Thanks to KU-RTAP, OCCK, Flint Hills aTa Bus, and Nemaha County for being a huge part of what made the final video so excellent, and so well-received by the Task Force and everyone at KDOT.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4whYW0QIxo&feature=em-share_video_user
