Transportation Delivery


 Who We Are

The Office of Transportation Delivery, comprising two branches, is responsible for seeking grant funds; overseeing and implementing various statewide public transit grants; and coordinating 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.

Kentucky Public Transit Branch

The Kentucky Public Transit Branch distributes and oversees grants, including operating, capital (rolling stock and transit facilities), and technical assistance. These grants are administered directly by statewide nonprofit or public operators. St​atewide, operators vary from a one county rural operation to multiple county systems to large urban area transit agencies. The Public Transit Branch oversees Section 5311, 5310, and some small 5307 public transit agencies.  

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. 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.
