Getting around using public transportation can be tricky.  Not only do you need to know the proper routes, but arrival and departure times as well.  If you are in the Fargo area, MATBUS has several tools to help riders get to where they are going. Watch this instructional video from MATBUS. Here is a link with accessibility tips as well as mobility device information.  You can even use a trip planner link where you can add the address of where you want to go and where you are starting from.  Once you put this information in it will show you the route as well as ask if you would like directions sent directly to your phone.

TapRide

Also, starting August 5th TapRide on-demand ride service will be offered in the Fargo industrial park Monday through Friday from 6:15am to 11:15pm.  For more information click here.  If you do not have a smartphone or need help you can call (701)232-7500.
