The public is invited to attend workshop meetings this month in southeast Minnesota to help offer ideas on strategies and projects for improving transportation options for veterans, elderly, low-income and disabled people.

The three meetings are part of the Region 10 transit coordination plan and are open to everyone, including local governments, transit operators, non-profit organizations and other interested parties.

“All transit users and stakeholders, persons with an interest in eliminating barriers and improving services for the elderly, persons with disabilities, persons with low incomes and veterans are invited,” said Andrew Andrusko, principal planner for MnDOT District 6 and Region 10.
