Additional Information

In 2005 Sullivan County community members identified limited transportation as a major barrier to access to health care and community life for citizens of this rural area of New Hampshire. The Sullivan County Mobility Project was created to tackle the problem.

A five-year transportation coordination plan
A transportation directory for the region and 
A website featuring transportation information and resources
Identification of lead agency to coordinate transportation 
A toll free telephone number for consumers
