 Okanogan County Council of Governments, Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan

Okanogan County needed help researching and writing their transportation plan update to submit to the state so that transportation providers in the region could submit their grant applications.

The Athena Group provided facilitation and other forms of professional consultation to support the accomplishment of the following:

  • Designed a survey of riders/potential riders which was conducted online, on-board buses, and through the local 2-1-1 service

  • Designed social media tiles, fliers and other communications to support outreach to the community of social service providers and transportation service users.

  • Designed a transportation service provider survey to gather key information about the services provided in the area.

  • Community profile research was conducted and GIS maps were created of routes and common origins/destinations.

  • Public outreach workshops were held in four different communities throughout the county.

  • A final report was created, which comports with the state’s guidelines on Human Services Transportation and Coordinated Public Transportation plans, summarizing all of the information gathered.

The county received its report on time and within budget so that it could apply for grants.
