Northfield Service Area

Service update for the City of Northfield - beginning Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Washington Street will be closed from 2nd to 5th Street. The transit buses will be using Division during this closure. This will impact our blue route - after the Family Fare stop they will follow Division to 2nd to get to Carlton. For the Inbound after St. Olaf, we will be stopping at 3rd and Division near the crosswalk for the Library stop on the way to City Hall. The City will be moving the sign to help identify the stop. Please contact dispatch at 866-623-7505, option 1, with any questions. Thank you!
