Extended Range: Jefferson Lines Now Serving the Iron Range

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - Jefferson Lines Bus Company today announced new regional passenger bus service for Minnesota's Iron Range, with trips beginning May 15. The new daily service starts in Grand Rapids with stops in Hibbing, Virginia, the Duluth Airport, University of Minnesota-Duluth and Jefferson Lines' Duluth terminal. These new stops connect the Iron Range to Jefferson Lines' extensive network of bus schedules and transit centers, connecting locations as distant as Missoula, MT, to Wichita Falls, TX, to Milwaukee, WI, with thousands of travelers' favorite destinations in between. Cities and towns not directly serviced by Jefferson Lines can typically be reached by connecting with partner carriers, putting the entire country within range for passengers on the Iron Range.

"Duluth has long been a great location for us, an area with lots of activity, and we're extremely pleased to extend our range into the Iron Range," said Kevin Pursey, Jefferson Lines Director of Marketing and Culture.

The new bus routes open up a new option for Iron Range area travelers, who have not had bus service in many years. "We've heard from our customers in that area, and they asked us for this expansion," said Pursey. "These locations should provide better options and more flexibility for our passengers."
