City & County: Transportation for Human Services Project
The City of Colorado Springs and El Paso County need a validated prototype to improve access to social services. In our area, many of the people who need social services the most don’t have a reliable, convenient way to get to them. These access barriers can cause small problems to become big ones that negatively impact individuals and the community. This project will develop and pilot a solution prototype.
