Rider Survey

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) and the Region 10 covering the SE Minnesota area needs your help. MnDOT is in the process of developing an updated Local Human Services Transportation Coordination Plan for 2016 and they need input from passengers in the region.  Please consider taking the rider survey.  This online survey takes 4-5 minutes to complete, and will help MnDOT to better understand the regional needs for transit services. More information can be found at the plan website:
