     Head Start Transportation Plans and Procedures
Purpose:

MOCA Head Start will ensure that reasonable efforts are made to coordinate
transportation resources with other human services agencies.

Scope:

This policy applies to the transportation department and MOCA Head Start.

Authority:
Head Start Performance Standard 1310.23

Policy:
The MOCA Head Start transportation department will attempt to coordinate
transportation.

Each agency providing transportation services must make reasonable efforts to coordinate
transportation resources with other human services agencies in its community in order to
control costs and to improve the quality and the availability of transportation services
[1310.23(a)]

At a minimum, the agency must:

   1. Identify the true costs of providing transportation in order to knowledgeably
      compare the costs of providing transportation directly versus contracting for the
      service [1310.23(b)(1)]
   2. Explore the option of participating in any coordinated public or private
      transportation systems existing in the community [1310.23(b)(2)]
   3. Where no coordinated public or private non-profit transportation system exists in
      the community, make an effort to identify other human services agencies also
      providing transportation services and , where reasonable, to participate in the
      establishment of a local transportation coordinating council [1310.23(b)(3)]

Procedure:

When desirable conditions exist with other agencies, transportation is coordinated to
eliminate or minimize duplicate routes or other undesirable situations.
