Coordination In Human Services Transportation Plan

The Imperial Calcasieu Regional Planning and Development Commission (IMCAL) initiated this “Coordination In Human Services Transportation Plan” in the interest of exploring ways in which better and more cost effective services could be provided for transportation to the dependent residents of Southwest Louisiana. This “Coordination In Human Services Transportation Plan” was formed not only for the Lake Charles Metropolitan Planning Area but the entire Imperial Calcasieu region with the assistance from representatives of Social Services, Private, Non-Profit, and Public Agencies including the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, and the Federal Transit Administration. This committee meets to advise and assist in the conduct of the feasibility assessment. The entire project team offers thanks and acknowledgment to the dedicated participants in the creation of this plan.
