Minnesota Valley Lutheran High School and Palmer Bus Service have been partners in transporting students at MVL since 2003. In this partnership with Palmer Bus Service, we have been blessed to work with bus drivers who really seem to enjoy transporting our students to and from school and for activities and events. Our site manager has been responsive to our needs and goes out of his way to work with the various schedules and logistical challenges that come along. The good people who manage and administrate Palmer Bus Service continue to insure that our relationship grows through quality service and excellent customer relations. Thank you, Palmer Bus Service, for being partners with Minnesota Valley Lutheran High School!
