Palmer Bus Service has been serving the Farwell, Glenwood, Long Beach, Lowry, Sedan, Starbuck, Villard, and Westport communities by safely transporting students since 1999. We safely transport about 700 students each school day in Minnewaska.

Minnewaska School District #2149 consists of a K-12 school with a beautiful view of the lake.

Glenwood is located in Pope County and is about 130 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. Lake Minnewaska is a breathtaking landmark in west central Minnesota and central to this school district.


Wyatt Gaulke manages our Palmer Bus Service location in Glenwood, Minnesota. He began his career with Palmer Bus in Shakopee in 2017 during his senior year of high school. Since then, he has continued driving school bus in Shakopee while attending Normandale Community College, and then in Mankato while attending Gustavus Adolphus College. What he enjoys most about driving school bus is the sense of connection to the communities he drives for.
