On Monday, December 11th, the indigenous-led Makwa Initiative pipeline resistance camp is holding an action in Carlton, MN to draw attention to Enbridge's illegal pipe storage yards that the company has been building to prepare for constructing the Line 3 pipeline. MN350 is coordinating a bus from Minneapolis to to the action with pay-what-you-can pricing. Get on board!
Departure and return point: Parking lot of the Lake St. Target (2500 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55406). Show up by 7:45am on Monday, December 11th.
All ticket prices are purchasing exactly the same trip -- please pay what you can. We want this trip to be accessible to everybody who wishes to come, which is why there are different price levels. You will be able to select the price you want on the next page of the booking process. If you have any issues with the website, further questions about pricing or details, or problems reserving your tickets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll follow up.
Please note that all bus times shown above are approximate and can vary based on road conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
The bus will be traveling from Minneapolis to the Black Bear Casino in Carlton, MN, to meet up with action organizers. We'll get to Black Bear around 10:30am. From the casino, we'll continue to the action, which will be nearby at a location to be announced.
If you can't come on the trip, please consider sponsoring a rider -- generous supporters make this pay-what-you-can bus open and accessible to all!
What about food?
We will make an effort to source food donations for the bus, but this cannot be guaranteed, especially since this trip is so last-minute. (If you can help donate food, please email us!) Special or restrictive diets may not be accommodated.
You are welcome to bring your own snacks or meals for any part of the trip (and extra to share if you like!). It is unlikely that this bus will take rest stops or meal breaks en route.
Are there bathrooms on the bus?
There is a bathroom on the bus. The bus is unlikely to stop for bathroom breaks, as the total travel time is only about two hours.
What about outlets / wifi on the bus?
There may be a wifi network and/or a limited amount of power outlets onboard the bus, but we can't guarantee these amenities since they are dependent on availability at our charter company. Please bring your own portable power pack and cell phone or hotspot if this is important to you.
Is the bus comfortable?
The bus for this trip will be a fairly standard motorcoach with a capacity of 57 passengers and a bathroom onboard. This is not a school bus. There is space for luggage underneath and small luggage racks onboard above the seats. The seats recline slightly and have reading lights. Many passengers choose to bring a blanket onboard the bus with them so that it's easier to catch some rest on the journey.
Is there parking at the departure location?
The bus will depart and return from a large parking lot in Minneapolis near a Target, a Cub Foods, and a few-minute walk from neighborhoods with on-street parking. In the past, many people have been able to find a place to leave their car at or near this departure location, but we cannot guarantee space or assume responsibility for your car while you're away. The departure location is also right next to the Lake St. light rail station and on the 21 bus line.
Does a minor (under 18) need to have parental or legal guardian consent?
Yes. All youth under the age of 18 must have a signed permission waiver from their parent or guardian in order to travel. We will provide copies of the waiver to be signed at the gathering point before departure, but this may only be signed by the proper guardian; please bring your own copy if you plan to arrive alone.
Who is organizing this trip?
This bus is organized by MN350, and open to all who wish to attend. We are not organizing the action itself -- credit for that goes to Makwa Initiative -- we are working in solidarity to provide an easy means to get there from the Minneapolis area.
What's your refund policy?
We recognize that things come up and plans change. We are willing to provide a full refund for tickets if a request is made via email to email@example.com before the day of travel. After that point, no refunds will be given.
Should I book today or wait until closer to the trip date?
Book as soon as possible, today if you can. Once this bus fills up, we close off ticket purchases and even though we'd love to have you travel with us, we have to say no if we don't have the room. For previous bus trips, we have often needed to start a waitlist and have not been able to accept many riders from it. It's often impossible to add extra buses at the last minute (we have tried before!) even if we have enough people to fill one. Book now.
