Another School Season Comes to a Close
The 2014-2015 regular school year comes to an end in the next few weeks and many of you will be moving on to Summer Schedules, enjoying a well deserved opportunity to relax and take it easy.
The past year has presented challenges for all of us here; including the move to the New Shop Location in Ramsey, new Driver of the Month recognition, new parking lot blacktop and new Office staff. We appreciate your flexibility and dependability throughout the changes and challenges. Your special efforts have made us stronger and we thank you for your part in helping to make the future look a bit brighter here at R and D Transportation.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

Thank you Ron for being a wonderful example of the Reliable and Dependable
that we strive for here at R and D!
It's that time of year. School is out and summer is upon us.
With that comes a lot more kids out and about playing, exploring and enjoying the weather. As drivers, we pay close attention to where the kids are when we pull up to schools, houses and other locations but now we need to keep an extra eye out EVERYWHERE. Please be safe when in residential areas, near schools, parks and other busy kid-friendly locations.
It's not just kids we need to look out for. A lot people have come out of "MN Hibernation" and will be rollerblading, biking, jogging and walking. Remember that pedestrians have the right of way and, by law, you need to stop for them. Look ahead for crosswalk signs. Slow to a stop if someone is there waiting. The flow of traffic may make you feel like you don't need to but, it's the law. If you are paying attention you'll be able to slow down and stop in time without causing an accident. People will follow your lead and stop too.
Don't be afraid to set the example!
Looking for fun free things to do this summer?
Want to take the kids to a movie? Want to have a picnic? Do both! Go see a movie in the park. Feel like going to a concert? Maybe discovering music you've never heard before. You can do that in the park for free too! Just check out www.mplsmusicandmovies.com for a complete list of FREE movies and concerts in the park.
Do you like seeing places you've never seen? Going on adventures that are close by, or far away, and free? Like treasure hunting? Well, Geocaching is the thing for you! You can go by yourself or bring the whole family. Kids really like this too. For them it's like a really cool Easter egg hunt, without the competition! You can download the app to any smart phone, grab a pen, bottle of water and your off for an adventure! (Look for the icon on the right when downloading)
