While public transportation might get a lot of press in the more-populated parts of the state, it’s probably the smaller towns and rural communities that have the biggest need.  A push by the Minnesota Department of Transportation aims to make access easier in some of those areas.

With the “Safe Access to Bus Stops” program, MNDOT would seek funding to make improvements to bus stops and bus transfer facilities in rural areas and small towns throughout the state.  Currently, the agency is seeking grant applicants – a process that will take place through September 29.

Communities that apply for the grant would be required to match the total project amount by 20%.  The remainder of the funding would come from Federal Transit Association appropriations.
