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.
