How To Ride

Knowing the Basics

MATBUS has an instructional video available to guide new users through the process of riding. Check it out below or watch for it on the City of Fargo's Public Access (TV Fargo) channels. You can download our schedules or maps, watch our "How to Ride" video or use our trip planner. If you have more detailed trip plan requests, please contact one of our Dispatch Team Members at 701.232.7500. All MATBUS fixed route vehicles are accessible for persons with disabilities.
