Successful Local Transportation Coordination Case Studies

These case studies provide details of local transportation coordination programs that are currently creating efficiencies, reducing costs, and improving transportation services throughout Minnesota.

In the spring of 2011, the Minnesota Council on Transportation Access, with the assistance of the University of Minnesota Center for Transportation Studies, identified and documented these successful coordination programs and projects.

The case studies are grouped into broad coordination strategies, which were identified by the MnDOT Office of Transit for local and regional coordination partners.
