The bus comes to get me everyday so that I can go to work. I clean houses so I have to go to lots of different places for my job. they have different buses that can get me to each house that I have to go to in northfield. I get to ride the route bus and sometimes the dial a ride bus if the route bus cant make it to my stop. I also use the route bus to go shopping. I live at Greenvale apartments and my home is right on the route which makes it really easty for me to catch the bus.
Called into toll free reservation line for hiawathaland transit 4 days ahead for scheduled pickup date and time for one way at $1.25. After arriving early at stop and waiting over half hour in temps below 50 degrees, this public transit shuttle never showed. Heard comments from other citizens in northfield, mn that they no longer rely on it for getting to work or appointments and will not refer the service to anyone anymore. City of northfield relinquished jurisdiction over this public transit shuttle bus in 2012. It is detrimental to providing reliable services especially for seniors and citizens in poor health on limited incomes in northfield, mn. Many people are now switching to taxis in the area to get them where they need to go.
