Greater Anaconda Regional Coordination Project

Started: February, 2012 Ended: September, 2012 Project ID #4W3934 Status: Completed

Objective

The objective of this research was to develop a plan for coordinating public transportation (transit) and specialized transportation providers in the greater Anaconda area.

Abstract

Frontier areas of Montana face many challenges, including transportation within, and to small communities (towns), as well as transportation to larger communities. People living and traveling in frontier areas need reliable transportation for a variety of purposes, including employment and educational opportunities, as well as for medical, recreation and other “life” purposes. The goal of this research project, conducted by the Western Transportation Institute working in cooperation with the Montana Department of Transportation and other stakeholders, was to develop a plan for coordinating public transportation (transit) and specialized transportation providers in the greater Anaconda area (generally a three-county area including Deer Lodge, Granite and Powell counties). The Western Transportation Institute collaborated with the Montana Department of Transportation to develop the plan by reviewing current information and communicating with other relevant stakeholders, including other public and specialized transportation systems in the area.
