St. Cloud Hosting Bus ‘Roadeo’ This Weekend – KNSI

(KNSI) – St. Cloud Metro Bus is playing host to the 33rd Annual Minnesota State Bus Roadeo this Friday and Saturday.

The event is free and open to the public to watch, with opening ceremonies kicking off at 7 a.m. Saturday at St. Cloud State University’s K Lot. The large bus division competition starts at 8 a.m., then the small bus competition takes place at 1 p.m. Bus operators from around the state will drive on a challenge course and will be scored on how fast they finish the course and how well they complete each task.

Bus operators will also go through wheelchair securement testing on Friday.

The last competition was held in 2019, and St. Cloud Metro Bus drivers placed first and third in the small bus competition and placed second in the large bus competition.
