Local Coordinating Board

The purpose of the LCB is to assist the MPO in identifying local service needs and to provide information, advice and direction to the Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC) on the coordination of services to be provided to the transportation disadvantaged within their local service area.

The LCB also reviews the amount and quality of service being provided to the County’s transportation disadvantaged population. The Collier LCB meets on a quarterly basis and holds at least one public hearing a year. The purpose of the hearings is to provide input to the LCB on unmet transportation needs or any other areas relating to local transportation services.
