  • Abstract:
    Rural transportation planning has been less coordinated and regulated than transportation activities in urbanized areas. In Florida, the requirement for local government comprehensive plans has provided the impetus for greater activity in this area for the rural counties of the state, yet the efforts are still limited. In areas with less than 50,000 in population, a “traffic circulation element” is developed as a component of the multi-topic comprehensive plan. Section 163.3177, Florida Statutes provides that “…a traffic circulation element consisting of the types, locations, and extent of existing and proposed major thoroughfares and transportation routes, including bicycle and pedestrian ways…” shall be developed. The planning for public transportation is not required. In addition, local governments are only tasked to look within the boundaries of their own communities for which the local comprehensive plans are being prepared; a regional examination is generally not undertaken in rural areas. In Florida, rural transportation providers who are Community Transportation Coordinators have the additional responsibility, along with the local planning agency of the area, to develop transportation service plans that address public transportation service needs and coordination activities. However, a comprehensive assessment that includes regional opportunities and opportunities for the non-transportation disadvantaged community is outside the scope of this effort. The Florida Department of Transportation recognizes the importance of effective, comprehensive, transportation planning in rural communities and within regional boundaries. Specifically, they understand that the provision of public transportation services to meet the needs of both the transportation disadvantaged community and the general public is critical to the livelihood of these communities. They profoundly recognize the value in looking not only at the need for services within a local jurisdiction, but also the need for cross jurisdictional planning and service provision.
