Grand Rapids is a thriving community in northwest Minnesota, with a diverse population and growing economy. Additional transportation options are needed to ensure that the area is able to provide equitable transit and assist in everyone getting to where they live, work and play.
The goMARTI pilot project was made possible by a collaborative effort between multiple state and local stakeholders and partners and resources for the project include a combination of cash and in-kind contributions from the project team. The largest portion of the project funding comes from the Minnesota Department of Transportation through their innovative CAV Challenge program. The Department of the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation also contributed funding through their Development Partnership and Streetscapes grant programs. Local partners who contributed cash and/or in-kind donations include: the City of Grand Rapids, Itasca County, Blandin Foundation, and Mobility Mania, among others.
