The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) administers federal and state capital and operating grants to help qualified organizations provide transportation to the rural general public, including the elderly and disabled. Eligible recipients of this funding are local public bodies; private nonprofit organizations; tribal governments and agencies; and operators of public transportation services. Windrider Transit receives approximately 56% of its operating budget from grants and secures the other funding from generous community partners.
In October 2021, Half Day Saturday fixed route services and Dial-A-Ride (DAR) services for medical, vision, dental and behavioral health appointments - to Bozeman and back on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and in and around Livingston on Thursdays - were made available to passengers. This service was originally funded through a National Rural Transit Assistance Program (National Rural Transit Assistance Program | Rural, Public & Community (nationalrtap.org) grant, with continued funding (after March 2023) from the Montana Department of Transportation - Transit Division.
