Passes are $55 per child or $125 maximum per family

    The Tri-Valley Opportunity Council, Inc. Summer Fun Bus is available again in the communities of Crookston and Thief River Falls. Because of the popularity of the service, the communities Mahnomen and Bagley have been added for this summer. Since the program began, numbers have continued to rise which prompted the expansion in service. Summer Fun Bus passes and punch cards are still available in the listed communities by calling Tri-Valley Transportation at 800-201-3432.

    The Tri-Valley Summer Fun Bus runs from June 1 until Aug. 31 and is for riders aged five to 17. Passes are $55 per child or a maximum of $125 for a family in the towns served.

    Young riders can use the Summer Fun Bus for summer recreation activities, appointments, trips to the library and summer school to name just a few possible options.

    Safety comes first on the Tri-Valley Summer Fun Bus. All the children ride in the front of the bus and are dropped off and picked up at their destination or event. In addition, all Tri-Valley buses are equipped with a camera system to help ensure the safety of the passengers and driver.
