BIS-MAN Transit in collaboration with the Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is developing a Transit Development Plan (TDP). The Purpose of the plan is to:

  • Work with residents and community leader to understand strengths and weaknesses of the current Bis-Man Transit system
  • Identify desirable changes to the system to better serve current customers and potential users
  • Prepare a plan of vehicle, facility, and service concepts to meet need and can be funded today and into the future

Due to the forecast of very cold weather, the presentation from the final public meeting has also been pre-recorded. It is available through the link above. If you have questions, please contact Bill Troe at btroe@srfconsulting.com. Thanks.

Links below will open the meeting displays and a comment form. You can email comments or use the form and give it to a driver (CAT or paratransit) and they will turn it in.

The NDDOT has requested the Transit Development Plan alternatives public comment period be extended to February 22, 2019. The MPO and Bis-Man Transit support this request. If you have any comments regarding the range of alternatives being suggested for fixed route and/or paratransit service, please send them to btroe@srfconsulting.com or provide comments through the survey link below.


For the scenario of identifying additional funds for transit service, a number of fixed route service enhancements have been identified. Each can be reviewed through the link below. While reviewing, you can also leave comments regarding your perception of each alternative.
