2008 was a landmark session of the Minnesota Legislature for finding solutions to the funding challenge for transportation and transit needs. The Hennepin County Board, the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority and the Metropolitan Transit Development Board (MTDB), representing the rail authorities of the seven metropolitan counties, were united in support of a transportation and transit finance proposal. That legislation is being implemented by the recently established Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB).
Building a transportation system for the future of the region and state that is economically and environmentally sustainable will not be easy, fast or inexpensive. But it is possible. It is also necessary.
