Passenger Transportation refers to transportation provided by a public or private service and includes transit buses traveling on a set route and schedule; non-profit service providers that provide rides for medical appointments, shopping and other regular needs; shared ride services like taxis, Lyft or Uber; and carpools/vanpools for work. Non-profit service providers are those that provide disability, social and healthcare services, while also offering transportation services to the general public/other clients. NACOG undertakes various research initiatives focusing on short and mid-range plans benefiting regional stakeholders. Our team of professionals also collaborate with state and local jurisdictions sponsoring their own initiatives.
