PUBLIC NOTICE The Southeastern Virginia Areawide Model Program t/a Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia (SSSEVA) proposes to provide transportation for persons over 60 and persons with disabilities in Chesapeake, Franklin, Isle of Wight County, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Southampton County, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. SSSEVA requests funds from the Commonwealth of Virginia to purchase five (5) wheelchair capable vehicles, transportation related software and control center/vehicle devices, mobility management to coordinate transportation planning and services, and operational support through the FTA Sections 5310/5317 and Senior Transportation programs. Virginia's policy states that where possible recipients should coordinate with other local providers who provide transportation services to enhance resource-sharing. The vehicles will be used to transport wheelchair and ambulatory participants from their homes in PSA 20 to fixed locations and back to their homes for medical appointments, agency related activities, and other necessary services. We invite any interested public, private, or para transit operator in PSA 20 to comment on the proposed services. Send written notice by February 1, 2018 to Department of Rail and Public Transportation - Public Transportation Division, 600 E.
