LeRoy City Lines

LeRoy City Lines celebrated its second anniversary December 1.  What started as a single bus providing commuter bus service to Rochester has grown into three buses providing two routes daily to Rochester along with charter services. The growth of LeRoy City Lines has been a plus for LeRoy and the surrounding area.  Watch the following news story done by KAAL TV 6 about the one-year anniversary of LeRoy City Lines. 


In November, 2016, the LeRoy Economic Development Authority purchased a 31-passenger commuter bus.  The bus is used Monday through Friday to transport people to Rochester for work, appointments, or shopping. "To have a future, small cities like ours must be vigilant to seize upon any opportunity to enhance the attractiveness of our community," says Brian Thiel.  "LeRoy City Lines is for all of us, for commuters to get to work and back, or anyone who wants to spend the day in Rochester without having to drive."  Anyone riding the LeRoy City Lines bus can use their ticket as a transfer to catch a ride on a Rochester Public Transit bus to reach a  secondary destination.  Ticket prices are very competitive offering Spring Valley level prices.  Mayo employees who receive a subsidy from Mayo pay $148 for a monthly pass and $52 for a 10-ride pass.  Non-Mayo passengers can buy a monthly pass for $228 or a 10-ride pass for $92.  The one-way cash fare for any rider is $11.  An annual pass will not be offered at this time, but it could be added in the future.  Please visit www.leroycitylines.com or visit their Facebook page (LeRoy, MN City Lines) for more information.  Watch the following news story done by KAAL TV 6.

LeRoy EDA Advent Calendars:

Continuing a tradition that began in 2011, the LeRoy Economic Development Authority will be conducting the 2019 Advent Calendar promotion.

Remember, there are only 100 calendars printed, so the odds of winning a prize are about 1:2.  Winning numbers will be posted daily at city hall, the post office, and on the "LeRoy EDA: 2018 Advent Calendar Promotion" Facebook group and weekly in the Mower County Independent.  Proceeds will go toward beautification projects around the city.

Watch for the 2019 Advent Calendar promotion to begin in early November, 2019.


Frugal millionaire leaves town fortune:

 A 94-year old World War II veteran who quietly amassed a small fortune by living a modest lifestyle surprised everyone in the small town of LeRoy, MN, when he passed away recently.  Loren Krueger bequeathed $3 million to various groups in his will, but only his lawyer knew about the gifts in advance.  Watch the video:
