Do you have special transportation needs? If so, this project may interest you!
The Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO) has initiated a Regional Mobility Management Implementation Plan to strengthen mobility and improve access within and beyond Yavapai County. This Plan also will investigate how to improve mobility through customer outreach and information, administrative and operating services, technology, cost-saving measures, and evaluation of services and systems. It will also address linkages between existing transit systems and services.
The Plan will also serve as a federally required update to the Transit Implementation Plan, and will contain all aspects of the Coordinated Public Transit – Human Service Transportation Plan for the CYMPO region. The Plan is not intended to function as a transit planning instrument in the Verde Valley where the City of Cottonwood operates a regional transit system, only a means to coordinate resources.
At the same time, advocates for transit in the Town of Prescott Valley are evaluating the transit service needs in the Town and the viability of asking the voters to establish a Transit District to provide these services. See our plans, studies, and reports section (Other Documents tab above) for additional information on this concurrent project.

Local Coordinating Council Meetings
September 9, 2015
October 20, 2015
Public Meeting – May 2016
A public meeting will be held in spring 2016 to provide the community an opportunity to participate in the development of the Plan. Study information will be presented and members of the community will be invited to ask questions and share ideas and comments. Meeting details will be advertised in the newspaper and online. After the meeting, the presentation and supporting materials will be available online to accommodate interested parties not able to attend.
Public Comments and Outreach
Because the Plan is intended to serve the needs of many individuals and groups, public involvement is a very important part of the process. Comments and questions may be submitted at any time using the Regional Mobility Management Plan for Yavapai County Comment Form, by mail, or by phone.
The local coordination councils for the CYMPO and Verde Valley region are providing guidance for this study. Many representatives of agencies providing human services and employment and training serve on this committee but we are also looking for citizens to represent persons who are elderly, have disabilities, or are Veterans. If you are interested in participating, you may contact Vincent Gallegos at CYMPO at (928) 442-5730 or RJ Erickson at NACOG at (480) 220-3310 for those in the Verde Valley area.
