In 2016, at the request of the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) and Blue Earth, Le Sueur, and Nicollet Counties, VINE Faith in Action created a public transit system to serve people of all ages living in the unserved rural areas of Blue Earth, Nicollet and Le Sueur Counties. The system, named TRUE Transit for “Town, Rural, Urban Express,” was launched in January 2017 using one small bus. Additional buses were added late in 2017 as the system began full operations.
In 2019 TRUE Transit began offering dial-a-ride service throughout Blue Earth, Nicollet and Le Sueur Counties Monday-Friday between 8 am – 5 pm for just $5 each way. The fare, which represent the cost of a one-way ride, is highly subsidized by MnDOT and county governments.
We do not provide transportation within Mankato, North Mankato, St. Peter or Le Sueur, only into or out of these cities. Please use the city’s transit system for rides around town.
If you would like to schedule a ride, or for more information, please call (507) 388-8783 or 800-560-1575.
