Community Transportation is all transportation resources in a community that are available to help meet community mobility needs. These include both public and private services, i.e. shuttles for seniors, church/nonprofit vans, etc.RCC map

In New Hampshire, the Coordinated Transportation framework was developed in 2006; it consists of a State Coordinating Council (SCC) comprised of state agencies, transit providers, nonprofits, regional planning commissions, and other groups.  This agency guides coordinated transportation across NH, as well as nine Regional Coordinating Councils (RCCs).  The Statewide Coordination Plan was rewritten in 2016 and can be found on the SCC page of the NH DOT website.

At the regional level, RCCs create/implement coordinated transportation plans (Region 8 plan PDF below), maintain a directory of regional providers, and solicit projects for Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) 5310 program.
