BUS TO MYSTIC LAKE CASINO – 2nd Tuesday of the month
There has been a change to the Mystic Lake Casino bus effective immediately. Anyone wishing to take the bus to the casino must sign up with the Buffalo Community Center one week ahead of time. We have been directed by the bus service that we must provide the number of riders and the number of wheelchairs riding on casino day one week in advance. If no one is signed up to ride the bus will not stop. Please call the Buffalo Community Center at 763-682-6036 for more information or to sign up to ride.
