Module 2: Promising Transportation Program Models
Rural communities are implementing programs to increase access to transportation. Implementing a transportation program model in a rural community involves strategic planning, community buy-in, and commitment from a wide variety of partners. The most appropriate mix of program models may depend on the rural community's needs, the target population, available funding, and community characteristics.
To learn how to identify and adapt interventions, see Developing a Rural Community Health Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
Rural communities are implementing different types of program models in order to achieve these goals. This toolkit identifies 15 promising models to address, divided into 3 categories:
- Models to Improve Access to Transportation
- Models to Overcome Transportation Barriers
- Models to Improve Transportation Safety or Infrastructure
No single model is right for every community. Most rural communities combine different models and implement more than one model at the same time to meet their needs.
