This is the fourth webinar in the Coordination Connections series. In this session, participants will hear from Charles McCarthy, Mobility Manager of the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments about his journey to re-establish a transportation system in NW rural Colorado. He will share the steps he has taken to provide education and information in light of a large provider discontinuing service, his leadership and involvement in the Regional Transportation Coordinating Committee, the gap analysis they recently completed, and their collaborative work to attract public and private transportation services to provide transportation in their area. Josh Massey of CarePool, which operates services in Wisconsin, Tennessee, Colorado and Kansas, will talk about his experience as a private provider working with the Regional TCC and why he decided to engage with them to provide service in this rural area.

The Coordination Connections series is designed to highlight coordination activities and successes from the state and local perspective. These webinars are part of the NADTC Coordination Campaign which is directed by the Coordination Advisory Committee. This committee consists of 12 professionals from the private and public sectors who will provide direction to NADTC as tools, resources, case studies, promising practices and informational and educational pieces are developed.
