Ernie Stier manages Palmer Bus Service of Mankato, MN. He has been in the busing industry since 2013, and all of those years have been with Palmer Bus Service. Ernie loves to go camping in his spare time and spend time with family and friends. He has 6 children, 4 of which are stepchildren and one grandchild. Ernie loves working with his co-workers, they are incredible at their jobs and make his job much easier. Ernie finds it so heartwarming to watch, listen and learn from some of the drivers and aides on the kids they take to and from school. Some will have the same kids from preschool and on and care for them and help them become better individuals as they grow up. Drivers will talk about how kids will come up to them at a store and say hello and talk with them. It shows how great of a job the Palmer Bus Service family truly is!
