The NARCOG Regional Transit Agency is a cooperative program of the North Central Alabama Regional Council of Governments in conjunction with the Lawrence County Commission, the Morgan County Commission, the City of Decatur, the Alabama Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration. NARCOG Regional Transit Agency serves the transportation needs of the general public throughout Lawrence and Morgan counties.
NARCOG provides transportation planning for our communities in the rural areas of the region outside of the Decatur Metropolitan Area. Our rural transportation program enhances the movement of people, goods and services by providing a cooperative planning forum for community leaders and transportation providers to have an open dialogue with the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) officials on the status of projects and transportation related issues and projects in our region.
Human Services Coordinated Transportation Plan (HSCTP)
The primary goal of this coordinated plan is to minimize duplication, increase transit services, and receive input from transportation service providers, human service providers and the public. The purpose of the HSCTP is to improve transportation services for persons with disabilities, older adults and individuals with lower incomes by ensuring that communities coordinate transportation resources provided through multiple federal programs.
