 Message from the Director

These past few months have been very unusual and challenging for all of us in Transportation. Even though we have not had a typical spring and summer, this past fiscal year seems to have gone by very quickly. Even with the pandemic, it was a busy and productive year in both Human Service and Public Transportation. In Fiscal Year 2020 we completed over 500,000 Medicaid trips in our Human Service Transportation program. With these trips LKLP and our subcontractors traveled over 8 million miles. All of our staff in Human Service and Public Transportation have accomplished a lot this past year and their hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed. We would like to thank them for their dedication and commitment to all of the people we serve. As we look ahead to this coming fiscal year, and hopefully more normal times, it has the potential to be even busier.

In June we submitted all of the FY2021 HSTD contracts to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Office of Transportation Delivery for approval. This is always on of our busiest periods and was even more difficult this time due to the pandemic. Bruce Brown and Kim Polly worked very hard to get this accomplished, as we had a short window to get all of the information together. Thanks to their hard work, we now have everything in place to begin a new fiscal year in the Human Service Transportation program.

       Ridership July 2019 through June 2020

















Expanded service hours are available through the Seniors on the Go Demonstration Project.
