LeRoy City Lines Commuter Service

Two 30+ passenger 'executive coaches' make two morning and afternoon trips for riders to Rochester's Saint Marys Hospital  and Downtown near the Mayo Clinic Center. The 23 passenger sibling is a backup vehicle. The morning route starts at 'Route 63 Travel Center' in Chester, IA continues to LeRoy near the newspaper office and then to Grand Meadow opposite Glynn's on MN 16. Typical ride time is about an hour. From Dec 1 to Mar 31 the Winter Schedule is in effect -- with morning starting just a bit earlier
All busses are also available for special trips and charters.

Routes extended to Chester IA in Sep.

In the Fall of 2017 all routes were extended down to Route 63 Travel Plaza in Chester IA  to serve commuters who previously had to drive to Spring Valley to catch the a bus there.  Our bus travel time to and from Chester will match the times going through Stewartville, Racine ending at Spring Valley because we go through LeRoy and Grand Meadow instead.
