The Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) developed a survey to identify the transportation needs and measure how well the needs of the disadvantaged population are being met. The UGPTI worked with four Centers for Independent Living that serve the state of North Dakota. Each of the centers selected a random sample of their clients and mailed the survey to them. The results of the study are based on a 21 percent response rate. This study found that a higher percentage of North Dakota disadvantaged reported problems with transportation than the national average.
