New bus route ties Le Sueur, St. Peter and Mankato together 11 Dec 17

The Minnesota River Valley Transit bus travels the 169 corridor connecting the cities of Le Sueur, St. Peter and Mankato as the route gets riders from town to town. The fair is $6 one way from Le Sueur to Mankato and the bus goes back and forth every two hours. The transit system between St. Peter and Le Sueur is offering free rides from Le Sueur to St. Peter  and St. Peter to Mankato and back as a way to promote the service. St. Peter and Le Sueur merged their bus systems in January to form Minnesota River Valley Transit. The new system has set routes and dial-a-ride in both cities, preschool transit in St. Peter and the corridor route to Mankato.
