In this paper we establish an attainability result for the minimum time function of a control problem in the space of probability measures endowed with Wasserstein distance. The dynamics is provided by a suitable controlled continuity equation, where we impose a nonlocal nonholonomic constraint on the driving vector field, which is assumed to be a Borel selection of a given set-valued map. This model can be used to describe at a macroscopic level a so-called multiagent system made of several possible interacting agents.
