Bus service to help get late-night patrons of local bars home safely


WILLMAR –– A transit program to get late-night bar patrons home safely on weekends is in the works for Willmar and Spicer.

The “Joy Ride” service is expected to be launched before the July 4 weekend and will continue through Labor Day.

The project is the result of the cooperation and donations of five restaurants/bars, liquor vendors, the Kandiyohi Area Transit and the Kandiyohi County Safe Community Coalition.
