This report documents the first comprehensive nationwide survey of Indian tribal transit needs, i.e., the American Indian/Alaska Nativa tribal governments and their existing transit systems. The survey was designed to serve as a research tool to provide information on current and projected transit and related infrastructure needs on Indian land throughout the United States. It provides policy makers with more informed view of Indian tribes and their transit needs. The document is based upon 95 tribal survey responses received. The tribal responses are representative of all regions in the nation and provide a cross-section of tribes reflecting differences in tribal income and population, tribal lands and reservations and other geographic and demographic differences. This document provides: an introduction to the National Congress of American Indians; background information of the National Indian tribal transit needs and report; statistical profiles of Indian country and population; survey methodology; Tribal responses to the needs survey; state-by-state summary; and a demographic survey summary.
