What is intercity bus service?

Intercity bus service is defined as regularly scheduled, fixed route, limited stop service for the general public that connects places not in close proximity and makes meaningful connections to the larger intercity network.

Minnesota Intercity Bus Study

The Minnesota Intercity Bus Study reviews and evaluates Minnesota’s existing intercity bus network, determines changes and improvements based on needs and service gaps, and provides policy recommendations to meet intercity bus needs.

This study is meant to guide MnDOT staff in their continuing effort to improve the state’s intercity bus program, and to provide thorough service and policy analysis for interested stakeholders, including service providers and the public.
