MATBUS to add two buses to popular route Jan. 23

FARGO – To meet a growing demand from passengers, MATBUS plans to add two extra vehicles to Route 15, effective Jan. 23.

Fargo city commissioners unanimously backed the proposal Monday night to increase daytime service from every 30 minutes to every 15 minutes.

Route 15 ferries passengers from downtown Fargo to West Acres Shopping Center and the 13th Avenue South Walmart.

The popular route has seen “substantial growth” in the past five years, and Transit Administrator Julie Bommelman expects further growth once the extra vehicles are in place.

There are no plans to change the route configuration at this time.
