The Mission of the NWRTCC is to SUPPORT improved access and options for transportation services in Northwestern MN through communication and creative partnerships.
Transportation is about more than improving individual lives; it is about improving all facets of our state’s economy, culture, and communities. Reliable transportation is a prerequisite for a healthy economy and is often the first step toward independence and opportunity for people with low incomes, older adults, and people with disabilities. Unfortunately, a multitude of funding programs and requirements across dozens of departments and agencies make transportation coordination and communication a daunting task. To unravel this complex web, transportation coordination and cooperation is necessary. When representatives of different agencies and organizations involved in transportation programs work together, they can increase capacity to serve unmet needs, improve quality of service, improve understanding and access to services by the public, and achieve more cost-effective service delivery.
The workplan consists of seven tasks that were identified by Minnesota Council on Transportation Access.
The Work Plan
Task 1 - Transportation Guidance
Task 2 - Vehicle Sharing
Task 3 - Stakeholder and
Task 4 - Volunteer Drivers
Task 5 - Training and Education
Task 6 - Integrating Mobility
NWRTCC serves the counties of Kittson, Marshall, Norman, Pennington, Polk, Red Lake and Roseau.
