Tribal members who reside within the tribal jurisdiction live in small communities that are located long distances from public transportation systems. Most of the tribal communities have limited or no public transit service available. Many tribal members do not have access to private transportation for travel, works, medical and healthcare facilities, tribal services, or to purchase groceries. The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are addressing the critical needs for access to transportation that will aid many tribal members who live on allotted lands with limited transportation alternative.
Provide safe modes of transportation infrastructures and improve the Tribes’ transportation system to advance the safety and mobility of Tribal member across the Tribes’ service area.
The Cheyenne and Arapaho Department of Transportation is organized in a manner in which to 1) conduct transportation planning, research, maintenance, engineering, rehabilitation, restoration, construction, and reconstruction of tribal transportation facilities; 2) provide operation and maintenance of transit programs and facilities that are located on, or provide access to, tribal land, or are administered by a tribal government; and 3) provide road maintenance.
