Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board (LCB)

As the Designated Official Planning Agency (DOPA) by the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged (CTD), the Palm Beach TPA administers the Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Local Coordinating Board (LCB) in Palm Beach County.

The LCB focuses on the needs of the TD population, specifically older adults, persons with disabilities, persons of low income and children at risk. The primary responsibilities of the LCB are to plan for and evaluate the paratransit service provided by Palm Tran Connection, the local Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC) for Palm Beach County. The LCB meets on a quarterly basis and reviews price and service levels, safety concerns, eligibility and other pertinent issues.

To view meeting agendas, minutes, presentations and other related items, please see Upcoming Meetings and Recent Meetings on the left side of this page.
