The Coordinated Public Transit/Human Services Transportation Plan is required by Federal regulation to be updated at least every five years. CYMPO did an update to its 2008 Plan in 2010 and CYMPO is planning to do a major revision in FY 2013. Therefore the 2012 amendments submitted to the Arizona department of Transportation are of a limited nature and do not reflect the most current information, such as the 2010 Census material. The newer data will be included in the 2013 revision.
All transportation providers who wish to submit grant applications for Programs 5310 (Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities Transportation Program), 5316 (Job Access & Reverse Commute), and 5317 (New Freedom Program) must be included in this Plan.

The Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO) has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with the regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DO), 49 CFR Part 26.
The MTIP is a five-year program with the first three years financially constrained. It covers the most immediate implementation priorities for transportation projects and strategies from the MTIP.
The purpose of public participation is to insure a proactive process affording the opportunity for the public to be involved in all phases of the multi-modal transportation planning process by providing complete information, timely public notice, sufficient periods for comment, full access to key decision points, and early and continuing engagement in developing transportation plans and programs.
A regional transportation plan update will be prepared for the 25 year planning horizon validating and/or updating the existing 2030 plan as previously adopted for the metropolitan planning area of the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO). The existing travel demand model and other components of the existing adopted plan will be readopted as is with the exception of the key tasks identified below:
The main deliverable products of the study update will include the following:

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires outreach to under served groups.
“No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
A further 1994 Presidential directive dictates,
“Each Federal agency shall make achieving environmental justice part of its mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of its programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations.” Executive Order 12898
The Transit Implementation Plan (TRIP) is a follow-up to the “Regional Transit Needs Study” that was completed by CYMPO in April 2007. The TRIP document identifies a transit service alternative and develops an implementation plan to initiate service on a step by step basis.
The Plan was developed with the advice of a staff sub-committee from CYMPO’s member governments as well as input from a Stakeholders and Providers group.
Additional guidance was received from CYMPO’s Executive Board, which accepted the Plan in January 2009.
The prelude to the Transit Implementation Plan Study was the Regional Transit Needs Study that was finalized in April 2007. The plan was developed to determine the feasibility of implementing a transit system potentially serving the City of Prescott, Towns of Chino Valley, Dewey-Humboldt and Prescott Valley, and adjacent unincorporated areas of Yavapai County.
