(Greater) Minnesota Transit Index

From the Minnesota Legislature’s Session Weekly, an index of Minnesota transit statistics.  Here is a sample:

  • 62% of Greater Minnesota transit users have household incomes of $20,000 or less.
  • 51% of Greater Minnesota transit users do not have a driver’s license
  • 86% of Greater Minnesota transit users ride at least twice a week
  • 50% of Greater Minnesota transit users ride at least five times a week

The index has stats on metro area transit too, and uses the term Greater Minnesota to indicate that part of the state that is not in the Twin Cities metro.  Which brings up an interesting question:  Does anyone actually use the term Greater Minnesota outside of the legislature and car commercials?

    I've always thought it was called "outstate Minnesota". But then again, I lived in Fargo-Moorhead before coming to Florida.

      Outstate and Greater Minnesota have recently been used pretty interchangeably.
