Dial-A-Ride Bus Service

Dial-A-Ride is a curb to curb service provided by Paul Bunyan Transit for Beltrami, Roseau, and Lake of the Woods County residents and visitors. Dial-A-Ride does not provide emergency medical service nor is it run like a taxi service. Other passengers are likely to be picked up or dropped off between your pick-up and destination. Please be patient with this. Weather, traffic and other unforeseen circumstances, which are beyond our control, may delay prompt service. Bemidji’s Service Area is within a 10 mile radius of the City Hall. Roseau and Warroad  Service Area is within a 4 mile radius  of  the center of each community. In Baudette we provide service to the Lakes Road, Clementson, Pitt, Graceton and Williams.
