Northeast Minnesota RTCC update

In April, Arrowhead Regional Development Commission transportation coordinator Beverly Sidlo-Tolliver provided an update about Northeast Minnesota Regional Transportation Coordinating Council (RTCC) activities. Its members represent public transit agencies, including the Duluth Transit Authority, Arrowhead Transit, and tribal transit agencies, as well as volunteer-driver agencies, direct client service providers, veteran services, health care representatives, and each county.

The Northeast Minnesota RTCC work plan focuses on building a foundation to coordinate transportation services in the region and then filling the gaps. Examples include creating a transportation provider database, facilitating vehicle sharing, developing a rider training program, and strengthening volunteer-driver programs.
