The Union County Health Department, working with our fellow partners within the UCMOVES coalition, is working on ways to maximize use of the existing transportation resources and identify the types of transportation needs local residents and businesses have. The coalition has been partnering closely with our business community and social service agencies to understand the unique challenges that face a broad range of Union County residents and workers.
Our vision is to enhance and develop infrastructure where transportation is accessible to all people for all reasons. Our mission is to advocate and plan for transportation systems that balance convenience and efficiency.
