MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A city in the North Dakota oil patch is expanding its bus service.
Minot city officials say the routes will be extended throughout the city and the hours of operation will expand from eight hours a day to 12.
The city has been studying expansion for three years. City transit spokesman Brian Horinka says the city has seen tremendous growth in a short amount of time and the routes were not meeting the needs of residents.
Three new people have been hired to help with the expansion.
