Regional Transportation Planning
COIC serves as a project leader, planner, and project administrator for a variety of regional transportation planning and coordination initiatives. The goal of these projects is to improve and enhance the availability of transportation options to Central Oregonians through coordination of existing transportation resources and providers. COIC is also a regional public transportation provider, through Cascades East Transit.

The Regional Transit Master Plan identifies where future transit services can support regional transportation and sustainability goals, as well as what is required to implement such services.
The COTOP provides a data-driven model for determining appropriate cost-effective investments in transportation options programs (e.g. transit, carpool/vanpool, etc.) to meet long-term inter-community travel demand in Central Oregon.
COIC and its partners – the Mid Columbia Economic Development District and Klamath County Planning Department – are developing a Park & Ride Lot Plan for ODOT Region 4, which straddles the Highway 97 corridor from California to the Columbia. The Plan will identify priorities for new Park and Ride lot locations and upgrades to existing lots.
County Public Transportation Coordination Plans
Most recently, COIC has assisted Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson Counties, as well as the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, to prepare and update their required Coordinated Human Services Public Transportation Plans.
