A demonstration project was designed to develop and evaluate a transit system in a growing urban-rural Indian Region in Central North Dakota. Fort Berthold is a reservation of about 650 square miles, with an Indian population of approximately 2,774. The people reside mainly is five small towns. The distance from the main town to the most distant community is 110 miles. The primary concern of the project was to support the economic and social development of the entire region by interconnecting the various, and sometimes isolated communities with employment, commercial, medical, educational, and other centers of activity. An element of the project was to search for ways of incorporating all the transit services in the region into a package that would sustain the system at a point where it would become economically self-sufficient.
