looking for best way from international falls south
Posted November 26th, 2012 - 9:46 pm by from Englewood, United States (Permalink)
i am currently traveling through canada. will be heading to ft frances, on tmrw and then south to mo. rides seem to easy to find from minneapolis down. but i am wondering if anyone would know a good way from international falls to minneapolis. as far as i have found there is no bus and no one going on craigslist. any advice?

f you haven't been able to find buses then i am sure you checked the web. but if not check greyhound. thats the only motor coach line i know but there may be more. when you arrive in int falls check the airport for motor coaches or maybe ft francis could help. you could try hitch hikin. its been a long time since i drove up that way. but you could consult a map to see what that major highway is that runs south from the falls. when i would drive up there i would take I35 to HWY33 etc..to the falls.

i did a web search and got some hits. you can try looking for "lorenz", "jefferson", or "greyhound". i don't know about the logistics. if they will cross country borders or if you have to be on this side to catch a ride. but you said you were gonna be in int falls so it shouldn't matter. but you could try "embarass" mn its pretty close to int falls.

but the other suggestion of hitchin a ride at a truck stop or dinner is a good option.

Best way south is hwy 53 to 33 (takes u to Cloquet) to 35. Check with the chamber of commerce (in I falls) if there is a regular bus. It is old brick bldg. (old train station/depot I believe) just after u cross the bridge on left side. There are probably busses from Virginia to Duluth to Cities. There used to be busses south from Falls, but it has been over 10 years since I used one. I'll be headed to Cook on Wed. Thats not quite half way to Duluth from falls. Another option may be pulp/wood truckers from the Boise wood scales that are east on hwy 11 about 1-2 miles after u cross the bridge. Pulp trucks go to Duluth as well, from this area and they might be able to take u part way and line up another pulp truck (most have good radio communications) to take you into Duluth.
Good luck,
