RCL giving away free rides to commuters

A recent U.S. Census report indicated that over 28,000 people commute into Rochester, Minn. each day to make our local economy thrive. On Thursday, June 20, Rochester City Lines is encouraging area commuters to park their cars and participate in the eighth annual “Dump the Pump Day.” To encourage riders to “dump the pump,” RCL is committing to give away up to 1,000 free rides on their buses, which serve 40 surrounding communities in Southeastern Minnesota.

“This is a great opportunity. We find that 4 out of 5 people who try riding one of our motor coaches discover that they like it. It saves them money, it’s environmentally friendly and it’s a better use of their time,” says Christian Holter, RCL Community Liaison. “In light of the growing number of inbound commuters and the projected future growth of Rochester thanks to the DMC initiative, choosing an efficient, green and effective form of alternative transportation for the daily commute is going to become increasingly important.”

While the primary terminals for RCL buses are St. Mary’s Hospital and downtown, riders who need to get beyond these areas can transfer for free to in-city routes to complete their trip. To take advantage of this free opportunity to “dump the pump,” interested commuters should contact Rochester City Lines either by email ( or phone (507-288-4353).

Rochester City Lines is a family-owned business in Rochester founded in 1966 by the Holter family. The Holters have built their business from the ground up, and have trained and developed a knowledgeable staff that is eager to provide enjoyable and dependable transportation for travelers of all ages.
