Minnesota Ride Link provides veterans, military families, and others a single source for information about transportation options. The link is made by connecting to the MinnesotaHelp Network™ (the state’s existing one-call/one-click virtual information center). The Minnesota Ride Link project is sponsored by the Minnesota Departments of Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Human Services and the Minnesota Board on Aging. Funding is provided through a Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative grant from the Federal Transportation Administration.
