The TBARTA New Freedom planning project for Citrus and Hernando Counties aims to develop a plan for the disabled and mobility challenged population, seeking integration into the work force and full participation in society. Further, the final plan will serve to reduce barriers to transportation services and expand the transportation mobility options available to people with disabilities beyond the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Lastly, coordination and combination of appropriate mobility services activities, as to be an output of the plan, is expected to produce a more cost-efficient structure for providing such transportation services.
