Didn't this run from the Woodbury Theater Park-n-Ride before?

Not sure Paul. I don't think they did last year, but I could be mistaken. And I was running the paper up in Stillwater before that.

We have been taking this bus for years. It used to pick up/ drop off in the strip mall on 10th street- right accross from Kmart. They moved when that strip mall closed down.

Why is it that there is never any way to get to the fair from Woodbury if you don't drive? They should have a way for someone to there who can't drive or doesn't have a vehicle.
