Human Services Transportation Delivery Branch (HSTD) The Human Service Transportation Delivery Branch is responsible for the oversight of the Human Service Transportation Delivery (HSTD) program. The HSTD program consolidates transportation services previously provided by various state governmental agencies. The former transportation delivery process was fragmented, increasingly costly, and vulnerable to fraud and abuse. In addition, transportation services were not easily accessible in some rural areas.
Under the HSTD program, transportation services for the Department for Medicaid Services, Department for the Blind, and the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation are now coordinated by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Office of Transportation Delivery.
