Editorial: Transit funding is hit hard in rural MN
Rural transit services in west central Minnesota and around the state are facing growing funding problems just as rider demand is increasing.

- Rural Minnesota has an aging population.
- Rural residents are learning to utilize transit services.
- Working people are finding personal transportation cost prohibitive.
- Increasing fuel prices will force more to rural public transit services.
