Rochester City Lines Heading North: Daily service to downtown Minneapolis starts September 3

Rochester City Lines is set to once again offer daily public bus service to the Twin Cities for Rochester, Minn. residents. After an attempt fell short last fall, the local bus company took the route off-line and back to the drawing board. The new route, which starts September 3, will offer weekday limited stop service to the heart of downtown Minneapolis.

Speaking about the route, City Lines’ community liaison Christian Holter said, “Even though we had quite a bit of interest last year, it became clear pretty early on that the route wasn’t serving riders as well as it could. This route is much more direct. We’re going right into downtown Minneapolis, and we’ve actually shaved an hour off the total trip time each day. We believe this can attract and serve multiple customer groups including daily commuters, occasional business travelers and day trippers.”

To encourage drivers to dump the pump and take the bus, RCL is offering a free 10-Ride pass to all riders as well as discounted monthly passes for the month of September. For schedule and ticketing information, interested persons can call RCL at 507-288-4353 or email info@rclbus.com.

This will be the fourth bus offered by RCL connecting Rochester and the Twin Cities via the Highway 52 corridor. RCL currently offers three southbound trips for metro area residents who commute to Rochester. The new route will be for locals who travel north for the day.

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.
