About Us

Arrowhead Transit, established in 1974, acts as the primary provider of public transportation in the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota. As the largest rural public transportation system in the state, we are committed to delivering reliable services to residents across 10 counties in Northeastern Minnesota: Aitkin, Itasca, Koochiching, St. Louis, Lake, Cook, Carlton, Pine, Chisago, and Isanti.

Our services cater to the diverse needs of our travelers, commuters, and community members. From scheduled services to our Volunteer Driver Program, we ensure convenient and accessible public transportation options for all. Our drivers undergo comprehensive training, covering defensive driving techniques.

At the core of our services is Dial-A-Ride, a flexible and personalized public transportation solution for those seeking adaptability in their commute. Unlike traditional routes, Dial-A-Ride offers inner-city public transportation with the flexibility you need, providing a quick and efficient journey tailored to your requirements.

Using Dial-A-Ride is straightforward. Call 1-800-862-0175, and our dispatchers will guide you through the process, gathering information about your location, desired destination, and preferred travel times.

Arrowhead Transit takes pride in its extensive coverage area, spanning 10 counties and covering a vast 20,525.74 square miles. To put it into perspective, that’s approximately seven times the size of the seven-county twin cities metro in Minnesota, making us the largest rural transportation service in the state and the second-largest in the country.
