Daily bus service has returned to the Iron Range, with a daily loop provided by Jefferson Lines.
The route, which started last week, runs from Grand Rapids, through Hibbing and Virginia and then to Duluth and back, says the Mesabi Daily News.
The area lost its regular regional bus services during economic downturns. The new route will also provide connections to Jefferson’s other routes in the Midwest, extending to Texas.
Jefferson Lines Market Director Kevin Pursey told the paper: “We had a lot of calls from both residents and local governments, asking us to consider it.”
