Why is This Important?


As part of the Greater Minnesota Transit Investment Plan (GMTIP), MnDOT developed a service plan to assist systems with meeting transit needs in greater Minnesota. One performance measure in the service plan outlined minimum daily span of service guidelines based on community population. A bus route with a longer span of service will generally be able to meet a wider variety of users and purposes than a route with a shorter span of service. The measure helps communities meet transit service needs and connect Minnesotans with employment, housing, services, and recreation. This measure also fulfills goals outlined in the Minnesota Olmstead Plan to improve transportation options for individuals with disabilities.
