Fargo bus service giving free rides for volunteers

Fargo's city bus service is offering free rides to people who want to help fill sandbags.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo's city bus service is offering free rides to people who want to help fill sandbags.

The shuttles will be leaving for Sandbag Central every 20 minutes from two sites, the West Acres Shopping Center and Jitters Coffee Bar on the North Dakota State University campus.

Sandbag Central is city storage facility that is being used in a 10-day campaign to fill a million sandbags.

The shuttles will operate from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

The Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., area is preparing for its fourth major flood in five years.

The National Weather Service says the Red River has a 50 percent chance of reaching 38 feet later this month, which would be the fifth highest flood of all time.
