Since 2017, when the program was added to the Athens Mobility Management, Hocking County Mobility Management has been dedicated to connecting community members to affordable and accessible transportation options throughout the region.
The program continues to advocate for increased transit support, educate community members about different transportation options and how to utilize them, and collaborate with a wide range of partners and providers to better meet the needs of the community. The program also hosts transportation meetings within each county and is responsible for all updates and annual reviews of the Hocking County Coordinated Transportation Plan.
Hosted by Hocking, Athens, Perry Community Action, we believe that the lives of all individuals can be empowered and our entire community strengthened by coordinating transportation services and exploring new opportunities to improve transportation options.
The current Mobility Manager, Christa Myers, has experience working with non-profits focusing on juvenile justice reform, youth development, food insecurity and senior citizens. She enjoys problem solving and helping other people, which is a focus of mobility managers. She looks forward to strengthening her knowledge of the transportation field, supporting Hocking County’s rural transportation by surveying the community to learn about specific gaps and needs and collaboratively focusing on improvement.
