BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (AP) - Representatives of regional transit services serving elderly and disabled persons in West Virginia are working on ways to improve services.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/103EPBY ) that leaders gathered at the Bluefield Area Transit System this week to continue discussions on the state Department of Transportation’s 5310 program.

Officials say all 11 regions in West Virginia are conducting similar sessions to keep up with available services as well as to continue the goal-setting process.

The West Virginia Division of Public Transit is conducting a regional coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan.

The meeting in Bluefield this week included discussion on the current plan, unmet transportation needs, existing coordination efforts, and an action plan for improving coordination efforts over the next four years.
