Access to effective transportation services fulfills several basic needs for many of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough’s residents. This includes access to healthcare, employment, and basic nutrition for those who would otherwise have no way of accessing critical services.
The need for sufficient access remains unmet for many Borough residents, due to a lack of adequate transportation options for those who do not drive or own a vehicle. This is most common with older adults, individuals with disabilities, and low-income households. An effective public transit and human service transportation system enhances the quality of life for those who cannot drive.
The Mat-Su Borough has partnered with the Mat-Su Health Foundation (MSHF) to update the Borough’s Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan (CHSTP) and advance Borough-wide service coordination.
A sustainable, multi-modal transportation network that effectively meets the transportation needs of Mat-Su Borough residents of all ages and abilities.
