Given disparate transportation services provided in the Hilltowns of Massachusetts, Hilltown CDC is building a coalition, Hilltown Community Transportation, to address the gaps in transportation, especially for residents in the most rural areas. This work will begin with the eight Northern Hilltowns and includes representation from Mass Mobility, the statewide initiative to increase mobility access.
In June of 2015 the Hilltown CDC received a grant from Tutfts Health Plan Foundation (see grant announcement, here), under the Systems and Best Practices category, which is designed to improve or build systems to support healthy living with an emphasis on the systems that are serving older adults. The CDC will use the funds to begin a study of possible options to increase access to transportation throughout the Hilltowns region.
