The initial goal of this report is to create an awareness within the state relative to the condition of the state's passenger transportation "system". Included in this discussion is an identification of the transportation services presently available in North Dakota, an analysis of the state's role in the provision of these services, and a comparison of existing services and actual citizen travel needs. Within this broad framework, a general overview of the state's passenger transportation "system" is presented and problem areas identified. Recommendations for action based upon the problems will be developed. The overall goal of this effort is the establishment of a means to develop a more efficient and effective passenger transportation system for North Dakota's transportation deprived citizens. The suggested recommendations for action, which are accompanied by cost estimates for implementation, are divided into two broad categories. The first category involves primarily policy enactments and policy changes. The overall intent of these policies is to establish state-level goals and objectives relative to the provision of transportation services within the state, which will in-turn give direction to future state actions related to passengers transportation services and the administration of transportation programs. The second category involves legislative action. These recommendations are designed to both strengthen existing transportation services and to encourage and assist in the development of new and expanded services. Their enactment is directly related to the informal acceptance of the policy recommendations.
