CTAA has put together a COVID-19 Buyer’s Guide to better assist our members in identifying the best, most relevant, cleaning, disinfecting and PPE supplies, or other COVID-19 related supply purchases.
Thank you to all of our Minnesota transit systems for contributing to this report!

Here is the link to the Buyer's Guide.

Transit Funding/ Agency Information

MPTA is currently working with MnDOT's Office of Transit and Active Transportation (OTAT) to improve transparency regarding investment decisions for public transportation systems. This will allow for a more collaborative decision-making process and will move towards a multi-year program versus the current annual solicitation. The files below provide more information. More documents will be provided as they are available.
