Arrowhead Transit is the public bus system set up to meet your personal transportation needs. Our Dial-A-Ride service brings the bus right to your front door and drops you off right where you need to go. Unlike big city transit drivers, our drivers are not only allowed to get out of their seats, part of their job description is to assist any passenger that needs any type of help: whether it is an arm to hold onto; or strapping a child into the child restraints built into the bus seats; or using the lift and the tie downs for someone using a wheelchair.

Every Tuesday a bus from the North Shore travels to Duluth. Every Wednesday a bus travels from I Falls to Bemidji. Check out our bus schedule. Find out where the Arrowhead Transit bus can take you. Then call our dispatch to set up your ride! 800-862-0175

You only need to make one call to schedule your pick-up time and your ride back. When you call dispatch for your ride, let them know when you want the bus to bring you back home. Or, schedule your rides in advance. Our dispatchers can now schedule your rides over two months in advance!
