Metro Transit gave over 77 million rides in 2019, 251,564 a week on average. Close to a quarter of those served are African Americans, 38% do not own a vehicle, 10% have a disability, and close to 64% have annual incomes less than $60,000. Public transportation systems are associated with reductions in health risk factors such as motor vehicle crashes, air pollution, and physical inactivity, helping ensure that people can reach everyday destinations, such as jobs, schools, healthy food outlets and healthcare facilities, safely and reliably. The Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Greater Minnesota Transit Plan 2010-2030 hopes to expand services while maintaining cost effectiveness.
