More than 15% of the traveling public stops at Travel Information Centers throughout Minnesota, and recent studies project continued growth in that number. By providing information centers at most of Class I Rest Areas, state agencies could reach more than two million customers. Increased collaboration among state agencies can help in effectively and efficiently meeting this growing need. In 1993, the Minnesota Department of Trade and Economic Development (DTED) and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MN/DOT) guided the development of a touch screen information system that supplies a variety of information. Three units, known as Travel Partner kiosks, began operating on a test basis in 1994. The project improved the delivery of information to customers and also opened the door to future collaboration. The report details the project's history, results, and future efforts.
