This study reports the findings of a questionnaire used to determine the travel needs of potential users and gauge potential interest for implementing an express bus system. Clay County Rural Transit is (CCRT) is considering the implementation of an express bus system to serve commuters between the Wahpeton-Breckenridge and Fargo-Moorhead metro areas, a 55 55-mile trip. CCRT runs a similar service between Detroit Lakes, Barnesville, and Fargo-Moorhead. The bus would stop at designated areas using a park and ride system. A questionnaire was created to determine travel needs of potential users and gauge potential interest in such a service.
