"Hastings residents who lack transportation can’t use that as an excuse for being late to court or not showing up at all. It also won’t be an excuse for missing meetings with social workers, probation officers or counselors who can help them find jobs.

That’s because Dakota County is offering them free rides.

As part of a six-month $60,000 pilot launched in the fall, DakotaLink provides free bus rides to those who need to get to public health appointments and use other county services but may not have any way to get there, said Robyn Bernardy, Dakota County’s transportation coordinator."
