Hibbing: The birthplace of the busing industry

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

HIBBING, MN — Hibbing is seen as the birthplace of the busing industry. It’s where Greyhound Bus first hit the road.

The Greyhound Bus Museum has 22 historic buses from the company’s history.

It opened in 1999 and gets around 7,000 visitors a year.

It tells the story of two immigrants who came to Hibbing and quickly figured out people needed a way to get around.

“They came here, they bought a Hupmobile agency, couldn’t sell the cars so they started charging for rides and figured out that there was something more to this,” said Ron Dicklich, the musuem’s Volunteer Director.

The company expanded from giving rides around Hibbing, to the state and eventually the rest of the country.
