The planning project focused on bridging the gaps and developing a transportation system that aligns transit services with needs to assist in increasing access to health care for transit dependent dialysis users.

The project included a large component of educating transportation and dialysis clinic staff about the processes and challenges involved in their work to serve patients who need dialysis.
