The Office of Transportation Delivery is responsible for seeking grant funds; the oversight and implementation of various statewide public transit grants; and coordinates human service transportation such as non-emergency medical transportation.
Transportation grants offer general public transit services and assist in the mobility for the elderly, low income, and persons with disabilities.

The grants include operating, capital (rolling stock and transit facilities) and technical assistance. These grants are administered directly by statewide nonprofit or public operators. Statewide, operators vary from a one county rural operation to multiple county systems to large urban area transit agencies.

March 14, 2017
In accordance with the Federal Transportation Administration, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), OFFICE OF TRANSPORTATION DELIVERY (OTD), has updated its State Management Plan to comply with the new Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST ACT). Effective, March 8, 2017, the final State Management Plan has been approved by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). To review the final version, please visit the State Management Plan link located on the right of the screen.
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.
