There is no guarantee of Minnesota Nice out in traffic. Drive two miles under the speed limit and someone is shaking their fist at you. Be guaranteed of Minnesota Nice when you take the Arrowhead Transit bus. Our bus drivers treat you with respect, and kindness. Take our bus more than a few times and your drivers will greet you by your name.
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.
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!
From most cities in the eight counties of the Arrowhead, we provide bus service to Duluth and/or Brainerd one or more times a month. We also have many bus routes between cities in the Arrowhead. Check out our schedule by clicking on the county where you wish to travel. All buses are fully handicapped accessible and the seats are designed to safely secure car seats. Certified service dogs are welcome. Bicycles may be brought on the bus. Scheduled, Dial-A-Ride, and Rural Rides services provide flexible options for your travel needs.
