Temporary Hours Change

Starting Monday, May 4th, 2020, in coordination with Wadena County Public Health, Friendly Rider’s hours for Dispatching are Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Service is closed on Saturdays.

WiFi is what you need!!!

Thanks to a WiFi Grant from NJPA… the Friendly Rider was able to partner with Sebeka/Menahga/Staples-Motley and Wadena-Deer Creek schools

to provide FREE WiFi on the busses. If you are reading a good on-line book to decompress from work or there is a away game and need to

finish off some homework- its available and high speed. Thank you NJPA!
