Rimrock Stages bus service suspended

BILLINGS, Mont. – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has ordered Rimrock Stages to suspend its bus service across Montana and North Dakota.

The directive followed an inspection at the company’s headquarters Friday in Billings.

According to the Billings Gazette, the bus company was cited for 79 safety violations.

The paper reported that owner Thorm Forseth said it will likely take weeks to address the problems.

The company had been offering service from Fargo to Billings, with additional routes north and west to destinations such as Helena, Great Falls, Missoula and Whitefish.
