Notice of availability and public comment for amendment to 2022 coordinated public transit-human services transportion plan

The Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments (CWCOG), as lead agency for the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SWRTPO), invites the public to comment on a proposed amendment to the 2022 Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (CPT-HSTP) to make minor corrections and add 2023-2025 biennium Consolidated Grant project rankings.

The primary purpose of the CPT-HSTP is to identify public transportation needs and develop strategies for improving transportation services for people with disabilities, seniors, young people, low-income individuals, and others dependent on accessible transportation services to get them to where they need to go. The CPT-HSTP will include a list of regionally ranked projects for the 2023-2025 biennium as a result of this proposed amendment. The CPT-HSTP covers public transportation services in Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pacific, and Wahkiakum Counties. The SWRTPO Board is scheduled to consider this proposed amendment on January 18.

The CWCOG is a multi-purpose association of governments that administers a diverse array of federal, state and local programs.

The 2022 CPT-HSTP amended document with proposed changes will be available online at or by request at: CWCOG at Cowlitz County Administration Annex Bldg./ 207 4th Avenue N., Kelso, WA 98626 (360) 577-3041, beginning December 21, 2022. Questions may be directed to Robert Stevens at CWCOG by regular mail to PO Box 128, Kelso WA 98626, via email to, or by FAX at (360) 214-3425. Comments must be received by January 6.
