ATWIC:  Alliance for Transportation Working in Communities

Quick Link

The Alliance

The Alliance is a coalition of stakeholders that have a strong interest in improving transportation accessibility in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  This region-wide coalition is comprised of human service agencies, transportation providers and advocates, workforce development groups, healthcare facilities, government entities, and users of public fixed route, shared ride, and paratransit services.

Alliance participants want to ensure the region’s transportation system works for ALL residents, regardless of where they live, how old they are, their level of income, and any physical, intellectual, or mental disabilities they may have.  Coordinated and guided by ATWIC staff, The Alliance partners work diligently toward attaining a shared vision of “an integrated regional network of transportation services and facilities that provide measurable improvements for greater freedom of mobility for all.”
