NARCOG Regional Transit Agency Proposed Program of Projects for Fiscal Year 2022
The North Central Alabama Regional Council of Governments is applying to the Alabama Department of Transportation for an administration, operating, planning, and capital assistance grant under 49 U.S.C. Section 5311 of the Federal Transit Laws, as codified. The operating grant will provide financial assistance for public transportation service for the residents of Lawrence County and Morgan County and to purchase goods and services needed to combat contaminations related to COVID-19. The service currently operates Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. All residents, including wheelchair users, must schedule service at least one day in advance, before 2:00 PM. Fares are $2.00 for 0 to 5.0 miles; $4.00 for 5.1 to 10.0 miles; $6.00 for 10.1 to 15.0 miles; $8.00 for 15.1 to 20.0 miles; $10.00 for over 20 miles and up to the extent of the NARCOG Transit service area. Fares for trips outside of the NARCOG Transit service area are calculated at $1.00 per mile, round trip, beginning at NARCOG Transit office, located at 401 2nd Ave SE, Decatur, AL, 35602. Trips outside the service area are generally restricted to medical or other charter exempt trips, and are limited to one stop. No service changes are planned for FY 2022.
The capital grant will also provide financial assistance to purchase no more than four wheelchair lift equipped vehicles, and COVID-19 relate and other non-vehicle capital items for the NARCOG Regional Transit Agency public transportation service during FY-2022.
