In January, 2018 The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) was chosen to lead a pilot program named the Greater Regional Mobility Initiative (GRMI). The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) chose MVRPC to lead this project due to its strong history of collaboration and expertise. The GRMI will help create transportation connections for those with disabilities and for older adults in nine counties:
This project has two goals. The first goal is for all Ohio communities to develop a coordinated plan in order to prepare for regionalization. The second goal is to pilot the regionalized coordinated transportation planning process in two Ohio regions; one region that is rural and one that is a combination of urban and rural.
Review the DRAFT Greater Region Transportation Coordination Plan for Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby Counties.
The public is encouraged to attend one of the following meetings to learn about the demographics, transportation needs and gaps, goals and strategies for improving transportation, and mobility options throughout the Greater Region. Review and comment on the DRAFT plan in person at the meetings or use our online Comment Form. Written comments will be accepted through Thursday, July 18, 2019.
The drop-in open house style meetings will be your opportunity to review the Draft Plan. Facilities are accessible with free on-site parking at both locations.

Greater Regional Mobility Initiative Pilot Project
The two-year pilot project is designed to facilitate the transition from focusing on individual counties to a greater region wide project. In the coming years, regionalization will transform the coordinated plan process across the state.
