Temporary MATBUS changes today, Saturday


On Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20, MATBUS routes will be rerouted away from Island Park and downtown Fargo due to the scheduled march. This event will increase pedestrian and vehicle traffic throughout the area and, in an effort to ensure the safety of passengers and bystanders, MATBUS will detour all routes around the area beginning at 8:45 a.m. 

Fargo Service Changes: Fargo Routes 13, 14, 15, 17 and 18 will utilize the Holiday Station bus shelter (1st Avenue North and 12th Street North) and West Acres for transfers. Route 16 will only transfer at West Acres. In addition, Route 11 will not be operating; however, Route 13 will travel through a section of Route 11 to help accommodate any passengers who need the northern part of the route (Sanford on Broadway and the VA Hospital). 

Moorhead Service Changes: Moorhead Routes 1, 2 and 4 will begin and end at the shelter on the north side of the Moorhead Center Mall (previously the LinkFM shelter). The timetables will not change but passengers can expect longer layovers at the LinkFM Shelter. 

Shuttle between Fargo-Moorhead: For passengers wanting to travel between Fargo and Moorhead, there will be a shuttle bus between the Marriott Transfer Hub and the West Acres Transfer Hub. This shuttle will depart Marriott at :00 and :30 after every hour. Visit matbus.com and follow MATBUS on Facebook and Twitter for additional service impacts.
