About the Plans
The 2045 Transit and Specialized Transportation Plans are the framework for the ongoing development and coordination of both transit services and human services (specialized) transportation for the Pikes Peak region. The plans are dynamic and updated every five years. Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT) is leading the development of the transit plan. The Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) is leading the update to the specialized transportation coordination plan. These plan updates will ultimately be incorporated into PPACG’s 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
The transit plan provides guidance for MMT when considering changes in service, frequencies, new projects, and growth of the system.
The specialized plan sets out the evolution of coordination among multiple transit and transportation providers for seniors and individuals with disabilities. This planning process is required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for those agencies receiving certain federal funds.
Updates to both plans were last completed in 2015. Much of the recommendations of the previous plans have been advanced. Review the 2040 Regional Transit and Specialized Transportation Plans here.
