A rural public transportation program has been developed for west-central North Dakota which consists of two levels of service. One level is the formation of local transportation associates which would coordinate the travel demands of those is need of transportation and the automobile drivers in the community who are willing to provide transportation and which would actively pursue the expansion of a pool of volunteer drivers who would be willing to provide rides for those in need. The other level is specialized transportation vehicles, (designed for the handicapped) being leased by the community to institutions such as nursing and retirement homes in order to serve groups such as the elderly and handicapped whose needs cannot be met by the private automobile service.
