I don't know if anything like this has been suggested on here before, but a guy I know travels all around our State of Minnesota for FREE by using Casino Buses!

Most of our Native American Owned gambling casinos offer FREE bus service to their establishments. My buddy simply hops on their charter bus, rides out to the casino, then waits for the bus going back to the destination he's headed to. He claims he's covered almost our entire State for free this way.

I found a web site that lists all the casinos in Minnesota and their locations, along with bus schedule information:

You'll need to scroll down the page on the above link to find the casino listings.

I know the one in the Metro STL area will pick you up at the airport (Lambert) & deposit you at the St Charles landing- a great way to get to STC County when MetroStink won't take ya there....

My buddy does it from the Twin Cities, so he has lots of casinos to choose from. He just picks the one that has other connections close to his destination. If someone were to live in say one of the out skirts towns or smaller cities around the State, they may have to ride to the nearest casino, then take a bus to the Twin Cities, use some other means to get around the Twin Cities, then catch a different casino's bus back out to the area they wish to end up at.

Slow, but FREE!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
