This study demonstrates a method for identifying statewide transit needs and gaps, prioritizing investment needs for statewide transit planning, collecting better data for demand-response transit level of service, estimating costs of needed improvements, and projecting future service needs based on projected population growth. This presentation describes the study and its application to the state of North Dakota. The study method included a statewide survey of transit agencies, a comparison of current levels of service to benchmark values, the calculation of a mobility needs index, and the estimation of service and funding needs under different scenarios.
