(Fargo, ND) -- “Try MATBUS Week” is back, and is a fun and interactive opportunity the week of October 25th for residents of the Fargo-Moorhead community to experience all of the benefits that MATBUS has to offer.

There will be several special offers and events during the week to encourage residents to try out MATBUS services and join the nearly two million passengers who ride MATBUS each year. Those include:

  • Bus fare at half price (75 cents for adults, 40 cents for youth, elderly and disabled) Monday through Friday and fare free on Saturday. These promotional fares will apply to fixed route buses only and do not include MAT Paratransit.
  • Tuesday, October 26th, celebrate Customer Appreciation Day at the Ground Transportation Center. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., MATBUS staff will be giving out free freshly popped popcorn, cotton candy and bottled water.
  • Wednesday October 27th, stop by the Ground Transportation Center for Warm-Up Wednesday. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (while supplies last) there will be a self-serve station of free coffee and hot cocoa.
  • Saturday, October 30th, remember to take a piece of free Halloween candy on any of the fixed route buses while supplies last.

Those who have never ridden with MATBUS are encouraged to visit their website to learn more and watch a brief “How to Ride” video, or call (701) 232-7500 to learn more.
