MATBUS relocates downtown hub, begins construction project


Beginning Saturday, April 4, MATBUS downtown hub operations will relocate to the former Fargo Cass Public Health building at 401 3rd Ave. N. The current Ground Transportation Center (502 NP Ave.) will then begin a major construction project to update the building and its parking lot. Jefferson Lines will also move to the new hub location on 3rd Ave. N.

Relocating operations during construction will allow the project to be completed in a more timely manner. The MATBUS hub is expected to return to the Ground Transportation Center by the end of August 2020, with full project completion anticipated in October 2020.

At the temporary location, all downtown buses will park on the streets surrounding the building. The lobby will remain closed to the public (until further notice) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Accessible portable toilets will be available for passengers during this time.

As demolition begins at the Ground Transportation Center, contracted workers will be using hazardous materials suits. This is a precaution due to the age of the building’s materials. There is no danger to the public.
