LeRoy City Lines celebrated its fourth anniversary December 1.  What started as a single bus providing commuter bus service to Rochester has grown into three buses providing one route daily to Rochester along with charter services. The growth of LeRoy City Lines has been a plus for LeRoy and the surrounding area.  Watch the following news story done by KAAL TV 6 about the one-year anniversary of LeRoy City Lines. 


In November, 2016, the LeRoy Economic Development Authority purchased a 31-passenger commuter bus.  This bus was used Monday through Friday to transport people to Rochester for work, appointments, or shopping. "To have a future, small cities like ours must be vigilant to seize upon any opportunity to enhance the attractiveness of our community," says Brian Thiel.  "LeRoy City Lines is for all of us, for commuters to get to work and back, or anyone who wants to spend the day in Rochester without having to drive."  Anyone riding the LeRoy City Lines bus can use their ticket as a transfer to catch a ride on a Rochester Public Transit bus to reach a  secondary destination.  Please visit www.leroycitylines.com or visit their Facebook page (LeRoy, MN City Lines) for more information.  Watch the following news story done by KAAL TV 6.
