American Indian Transportation: Issues and Successful Models
Available in: Hardcopy Category: Planning and Design,Rider Groups,Mobility Management,Transit Personnel Publish Date: 01/01/2008
American Indian transportation needs are similar to the needs of most people who live in rural areas. Without transportation, many American Indians cannot participate in their communities nor can they access critical services, such as medical care. Many tribal members have to depend upon friends and neighbors for rides to medical centers, school and jobs. Others are unable to access any transportation and as a result they are unable to manage their health or maintain long-term employment.

This National RTAP Technical Brief, American Indian Transportation: Issues and Successful Models, raises some of the important transportation-related issues faced by American Indians: sovereignty, funding, coordination, computerization and economic growth.
