Dunn County Transit Update

Dunn County Transit is offering a variety of pick-up and delivery services to assist the Menomonie community during the Safer at Home order.

You can arrange a ride from door to door to pick up items such as groceries, household items or work from home supplies for a small fee, $3.00 one-way or $6.00 round trip. You can also call to arrange for items to be picked up and delivered to you for a fixed fee of $6.00. Drivers do not handle any payment transactions, so customers using this service must pay for good and arrange carryout or curbside pickup prior to service. To arrange for either of these services call 715-235-7433.

The Community Route is also available to all students for free with your UW-Stout ID. You can find route information on the Dunn County Transit website. You can also track the bus live using the bus tracker website or the Bus Tracker feature in your CONNECT app.
