Kerri Taylor, Central Kentucky Community Action Transportation Services Program Director
Despite the rise in COVID and Omicron cases, CKCATS has been fortunate enough to remain busy. In the month of January 2022, CKCATS trip capacity was up over 90%. After discussion with Lincoln Trail ADD, we decided to increase our Senior trips in hopes to fill all our units and better help meet the needs of those senior citizens needing transportation.
CKCATS will host a Coordination Meeting on March 10, 2022, by Zoom. This meeting is held every year to prepare the 5310, 5311, and 5339 grants. The meetings are aimed at providing for better utilization of existing services as well as identifying opportunities for planning and coordination to address transportation needs in our service area. The grants are due on April 1, 2022, at the Office of Transportation Delivery and we will meet the deadline.
CKCATS received the three Dodge Durango SUVs that they were waiting for in late December. Two of those vehicles were placed in Marion County and one was placed in Nelson County.
The Central Office welcomes three new Verification Clerks, Myranda Gray, Crystal Livers and Danielle Hayden! Marion County has hired several new part time drivers and we are always looking for more. If you or anyone you know is interested in driving for CATS either full-time or part-time, please go to firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
