Regional Transportation Coordinating Council for Region 5 MN

The goal of the Regional Transportation Coordinating Council (RTCC) for Region 5 MN is to fill transportation gaps, streamline access to transportation and provide individuals more options for travel throughout the region. R5DC has established a group of regional stakeholders to develop the framework for a Regional Transportation Coordinating Council (RTCC) to improve the coordination of transportation services through a network of existing public, private, and non-profit transportation providers.

The purpose of the RTCC is to improve mobility for the “transportation disadvantaged" and all Region 5 residents.

"This is not just about going out to get your sustenance or going to medical appointments. It's about people connecting with people, and getting them where they need to go."

Cheryal Hills

R5DC Executive Director

"The RTCC is trying to break down the silos and create harmony between providers."

Andy Stone

Transit Coordinator

"I have met the most fantastic people in the world - both clients and people that I work with in the office at Faith in Action. It gives you a good feeling."

Caryl Allan

Faith in Action Volunteer Driver
