Jefferson Lines expands service

On Wednesday, Jefferson Lines Bus Company will launch a new route connecting Duluth, to Fargo, N.D.

The route will include one daily run in either direction between the two cities, with stops in several other Minnesota communities, including Cloquet, McGregor, Aitkin, Crosby, Brainerd, Staples, Wadena, Perham and Detroit Lakes.

“We are excited to bring Jefferson Lines’ trademark comfortable ride and quality customer service to these communities,” said Kevin Pursey, Jefferson Lines director of marketing, in a news release. “This is going to be a real benefit to our passengers who have wanted to go across the state without having to go down to the Twin Cities and transfer on to another bus.”

The new service Jefferson Lines will make it more convenient for passengers to travel throughout Minnesota, the central Midwest, and with connections to other intercity bus carriers servicing the rest of the nation.

Schedule and fare information is available at or call 800-451-5333.

Founded in 1919 in Minneapolis, Jefferson Lines provides intercity bus service to 13 states, serving more than 160 communities nationwide. Jefferson Lines provides direct connections to thousands of destinations in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
