The Truman Coordinating Council in coordination with the Joplin Area Transportation Study Organization (JATSO), the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), and the Missouri Association of Councils of Government (MACOG), is updating the Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Coordination Plan for Barton, Jasper, Newton, and McDonald Counties.

The main objectives of the plan are to identify:


  • current transportation providers

  • transportation needs for older adults

  • people with low income

  • individuals with disabilities

  • strategies and/or activities that address gaps in service or achieve efficiency in service delivery

  • prioritize strategies for implementing specific strategies/activities based on resources, time, and feasibility.

Regional Transportation Plan


A Regional Transportation Plan was adopted by the Truman Council in 2009. This plan determined transportation needs from local areas utilizing citizen input. These needs were then presented to the Transportation Advisory Committee and incorporated into this plan. Four main goals were stated in this document:


  • System Preservation and Safety

  • Access and Mobility

  • Sustaining the Environment

  • Maintain Accountability and Planning


The Regional Transportation Plan has been combined with the Truman Council's Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDs) which is a plan required by the Economic Development Agency (EDA).
