CURE is not hosting a Bus this year, but buses are coming to the Capitol from around MN:
Bus/van transportation from Greater MN — Coach buses routes are being coordinated from multiple locations, including Austin, Houston, Montevideo, Bemidji and Duluth. You can reserve a spot on your preferred route when you register with any ticket type. Bus Captains will follow up with you prior to the event on the specific timing & pick-up stops on each route.
Parking/Transit — Parking (both free and low cost) and metro transit information will be included in your confirmation email & event packet that we’ll email to you 7-10 days prior to the event.
Additional Information — Organizers will distribute schedules, transportation options, policy highlights, rally speakers and other info to registrants in advance of Water Action Day. Your event packet will arrive via email 7-10 days prior to the event.
Legislative meetings — Our team will schedule small group constituent meetings with legislators (House and Senate) to occur during the day. Participation in these meetings is highly encouraged for all Water Action Day attendees. (We provide ample support, so they’re far easier than people think they’ll be.)
