Weekend Bus to St. Cloud and the Twin Cities

Students do not need to be from the metro to take advantage of the bus. The round trip service is perfect for weekend shopping trips, attending sporting events or concerts, visiting friends or family, and other fun!

The bus will depart from Morris on Friday evenings and stop in Alexandria prior to destination stops in St. Cloud, Maple Grove, and Minneapolis. The bus will pick up in those locations on Sunday evenings and drop off back in Alexandria before returning to Morris.

This transportation option was made possible through a partnership with University of Minnesota Morris.
