Why drive when you can ride?
Skip the parking fees, the search for the perfect spot, driving in inclement weather and join us on the Symphony Bus! We’re pleased to offer this amazing complimentary service in the Twin Ports area!
We want to continue to offer this service and need your help. The Symphony bus costs the DSSO approximately $20,000 a season, as part of that we ask for a donation of $5 per ticket for those riding. Bus ambassadors are available on the bus to take any donations, or they can be mailed to our Box Office, or simply give us a call at 218-623-3776! Sponsorship’s are also available, please contact Sales department at [email protected] for more information.
Busses run two times before each Masterworks concert. Busses arrive at the DECC at approximately 5:45pm (in time for the Concert Prelude Talks), and at 6:45pm. Please note that the bus will only run at the later time for Pops concerts.
Busses depart approximately 15 minutes after the concert ends. Busses leave when all guests have boarded and will return passengers to original boarding location.
