MnDOT seeking comment on Regional Transit Coordination Plan for Southeast Minnesota

ROCHESTER, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation is seeking comment on a draft of the 2017 Regional Transit Coordination Plan for Southeast Minnesota.

The draft 2017 Regional Transit Coordination Plan for Southeast Minnesota brought together stakeholders from the 11-county region in southeast Minnesota to coordinate the future of transit services in the next five years.

A special focus of the plan was on human service transit services for the elderly, persons of low income, persons with disabilities, and veterans. The plan was last updated in 2011 and this plan update is a federal requirement to receive transit funding for communities in the region.

To learn more about the plan and review it, visit www.coordinatemntransit.org/regional/regionalplans/2017/index.html or  mndot.gov/d6/atp/.

The plan is available in physical format at 2900 48th Ave NW, Rochester, MN 55901.  
Public comment and input will be accepted until Thursday, May 11, 2017.

For questions or to schedule a time to discuss the plan, please contact Andrew Andrusko, principal planner, at andrew.andrusko@mn.state.us or 507-286-7595.
