Football and Transportation!
A swonderful
YOU look :out over this
and colorful
gathering you cannot help but
marvel at the development of
football attendance during the
last few years.
Transportation has undoubt-
edly played an important role
in this marvelous development
and among the various forms
of transportation, the motor
bus has contributed a conven-
ient service for the football fan.
The Northland Transportation
Company, covering over 3,000
miles of Minnesota Highways,
has had the pleasure of carry-
ing thousands of football en-
thusiasts from all points in the
state to these football spec-
tacles. Each year more people
are finding the bus the conve~­
ient form of transportation to
reach football games. They
find the bus more economical
and avoid the worries and re-
sponsibilities of parking their
cars while visiting in the Twin
Cities . .
