MATBUS Offers Reduced Fares for Quarter Days


MATBUS invites Fargo-Moorhead metro residents and visitors to try a low-cost transportation solution this holiday season. MATBUS Quarter Days will be taking place the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, as well as every Saturday in December. On these high-traffic, prime shopping days, riders can board MATBUS fixed route vehicles for only a quarter (25ยข) each trip.

To help riders get to their shopping destinations faster, Route 15 will offer increased service by operating every 15 minutes on Quarter Days. MATBUS operates 25 fixed bus routes in the Fargo-Moorhead metro, with direct access to many popular locations, including West Acres, downtown Fargo, and the Moorhead Center Mall. Shoppers can travel in a warm, heated bus while avoiding holiday headaches like icy roads, busy parking lots, and increased traffic.

Each Quarter Day, drawing boxes will be placed on the buses to give riders the chance to register for prizes worth $25, to be provided by Midwest Communications. Ten winners will be randomly selected every week through Monday, December 18, 2017.

Riders can plan their MATBUS trips, view routes and detours, and check out live bus tracking on the MATBUS website, as well as the MATBUS Mobile app, available on Google Play and the Apple Store.

MATBUS is the largest rideshare program in the Fargo-Moorhead metro area, providing approximately 2 million rides per year.
