Transit board getting ready to eliminate itself

So many counties want to leave the Counties Transit Improvement Board, that CTIB is just going to get it over with and dissolve itself.

Janet Moore at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

A little-known but critical board that plays a big role in funding mass transit in the metro area took the initial steps on Wednesday to dissolve itself.

In doing so, the Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB) will likely ensure that major transit projects now on the drawing board are built. They include the $1.9 billion Southwest light rail line linking downtown Minneapolis to Eden Prairie, and the $1.5 billion Bottineau Blue Line connecting Minneapolis to Brooklyn Park. Both are expecting to begin service in 2021.
