2017 Greater Minnesota Transit Investment Plan

Help shape the future of Greater Minnesota transit

How would you change transit in your community? The state of Minnesota is home to numerous transit systems, ranging from large urban systems to county services that pick you up at your door and take you where you need to go. Public participation is a key component of the plan, and your input will deeply inform its recommendations.

The Greater Minnesota Transit Investment Plan connects the vision, goals and strategies from the 2010-2030 Greater Minnesota Transit Plan, a 20-year strategic plan, to the funding that each public transit system receives. The plan serves as both a modal and investment plan and aligns with the state's 50-year vision and the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan. It gets updated every four years, and with this year's changes we will:

  • Update the 20-year strategic plan for preserving current public transportation systems while improving mobility for the general public with emphasis on seniors, low income, individuals with disabilities and commuter consumer groups.
  • Refine the investment priorities for expanding, maintaining or reducing transit service according to future state and federal funding levels, as well as the strategic direction of transit in Greater Minnesota.
