The overall goal of the Regional Mobility Management Program is to coordinate resources to improve the availability and accessibility of transportation services for persons with disabilities, youth, aging adults, rural populations, and individuals of lower income.
As part of the Mobility Management Program, the Mobility Management Coordinator works with transportation and human service providers serving Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pacific, and Wahkiakum Counties – the regional area covered by the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SWRTPO), as well as providers serving the cities of Longview, Kelso and Rainier, Oregon – the urbanized area covered by the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).
The objective of the SWRTPO Regional Mobility Management Program is to provide equity within our transportation system giving the same level of service to all populations.
Program strategies are as follows:
- Provide safe and efficient travel options for the most vulnerable regional populations;
- Visibly improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and quality of the travel services being delivered;
- Provide information on the full range of travel options available including those within public transportation;
- Focus on innovation and transform usual business practices to improve upon the user’s navigation of regional public transportation systems;
- Cultivate partnerships by encouraging multi-agency collaboration;
- Connect community services and programs to improve coordination of transportation;
- Provide area residents a single point of contact to access information on available transportation options; and,
- Overcome transportation barriers by providing support through a network of coordinated region-wide transportation services.
Thanks to Grays Harbor COG, RiverCities Transit, Twin Transit, Grays Harbor Transit, Community in Motion, Washington State Department of Transportation, and the Federal Transit Administration for their support of this program.
These resources are aimed to help navigate public transportation in the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SWRTPO) and the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) regions.
Included is information for transportation services organized by county and by need. Intercity connections and trip planners are also part of the lists to help give a broader and more complete picture of mobility options within the region.
By being a central hub for mobility resources throughout the region, the Program ensures that users of public transportation are able to locate mobility services and plan their trips easily.

Travel training aims to teach people to travel independently and become comfortable using the public transportation.
Some transit agencies have their own travel training program designated to work with members of the community to teach them to navigate services from that specific agency.
The Mobility Management Coordinator works with the region’s public transportation agencies and non-profits to provide additional travel training opportunities to the public. These trainings are aimed to assist transit users with intercity travel, trip planning, and navigating resources.
The Program provides scheduled group training as well as one-on-one training. Group training events are listed in the Upcoming Training section and one-on-one training can be scheduled by contacting us.
All scheduled group training events will be listed here when available. There are currently no training events scheduled.
Staff attends various community events throughout the region to share information about the program with members of the public.
If you know of an event that staff could attend, feel free to let us know.
