ROCHESTER, Minn. - Every weekday, a total of 33 Rochester City Lines commuter buses travel to 40 cities in 10 counties in Southern Minnesota, transporting over 1,000 passengers between work and home.

Rochester City Lines has remained a family-owned business since 1966, operated by the Holter family for three generations. As the largest, local, family-owned transportation company in Southeast Minnesota, the Holter family and their approximately 100 employees appreciate the opportunity to understand and serve the needs of their commuters.

“We strive to deliver a timely, comfortable and dependable transportation service that is attractively priced and responsibly operated,” shared Dan Holter, General Manager of Rochester City Lines.

In an effort to continue to enhance the passenger experience, Rochester City Lines has established a partnership with the Olmsted County Journal and the Fillmore County Journal to make copies available on all 33 commuter buses every week starting the week of June 3, 2013.

Community Liason for Rochester City Lines, Christian Holter, expressed his support stating, “Rochester City Lines believes this partnership with the Olmsted & Fillmore County Journals is a very good fit and will bring added value to our riders. Their excellent and diverse coverage of regional governments and lifestyle news is a great way for riders to stay in touch with their home communities, even while they work or travel to Rochester. Riders can also save money in their shopping and lifestyle choices by taking advantage of the special features to be found in the pages of the weekly paper.”

The Olmsted County Journal provides hyper-local news coverage of city council and school board for Byron, Chatfield, Dover, Eyota, Oronoco, Pine Island, Rochester and Stewartville. In addition, obituaries, Olmsted County government, lively local commentary, Olmsted County court reports, local recipe columns, insightful book reviews, and human interest stories make the Olmsted County Journal the most well-read weekly newspaper in the region -- in print and online.

The Fillmore County Journal provides hyper-local news coverage of city council and school board for Canton, Chatfield, Fountain, Harmony, Lanesboro, Mabel, Ostrander, Peterson, Preston, Rushford, Rushford Village, Spring Valley, Whalan, and Wykoff. In addition, obituaries, Fillmore County government, lively local commentary, Fillmore County court reports, local recipe columns, and human interest stories make the Fillmore County Journal the weekly newspaper of choice for Fillmore County -- in print and online.

“We are completely dedicated to local, compelling news coverage. Combined, our two newspapers cover 21 city councils, 11 school boards, and two county governments, along with all of the other content we provide with a local flavor,” said Jason Sethre, publisher of both the Olmsted County Journal and the Fillmore County Journal.

Rochester City Lines has 33 commuter buses picking up passengers in the following locations: Austin, Bloomington, Byron, Cannon Falls, Chatfield, Chester, Claremont, Dexter, Dodge Center, Dover, Elgin, Eyota, Fountain, Grand Meadow, Hampton, Hayfield, Inver Grove Heights, Kasson, Kellogg, Lake City, LeRoy, Lewiston, Marion, Oak Center, Owatonna, Pine Island, Plainview, Preston, Racine, Reinke’s Corners, Rochester, Spring Valley, St. Charles, Stewartville, Stockton, Utica, Viola, Wabasha, Winona, Zumbro Falls, and Zumbrota.
