Transportation Disadvantaged Day

Transportation Disadvantaged Day will take place on February 2, 2012.

Registration extended to 1/17/2012 !!

This year's theme:




Most people, including Legislators, have never heard of the
Transportation Disadvantaged

(TD) Program until they or someone they know needs this service.  This
is why it

is imperative to educate those who are making the decisions about all
that TD does

to benefit the State of Florida.  TD keeps thousands of Floridians
independent and

out of institutional care while stimulating Florida's economy.  For
every $1 spent

on transportation, the State of Florida receives more than $8 in return!

Local economies are stimulated with each trip.  People do not leave
their homes without

accessing medical services, making purchases, conducting business, or
getting to

employment.  All of these trips have considerable impact on local
communities and

the state.  Because of these trips, people have jobs to provide services
and money

is spent on these services.  These jobs include the businesses that TD
people visit

to purchase goods, medical personnel who are paid to provide their
services, and

drivers, mechanics, customer service staff who all have jobs because of
the services

they provide to the TD riders.

TD Legislative Day is hosted by FACTS (Florida Association of
Coordinated Transportation

Systems) each year through the funds donated by sponsors.  When you
sponsor, 100%

of the funds go towards the event which is geared towards creating
awareness and

support for the Transportation Disadvantaged Program.

It is so important for legislators to here from the actual people this
program helps!

Attendees should go by and meet with the legislators and their staff to
thank them

and encourage their continued support.  If you would like to speak with
your legislator,

we encourage you to make an appointment with them in advance.

T-Shirts will be provided to those who are pre-registered.
