Mat bus is not great if you do not have a lot of spare time, unfortunately. I agree it is clean, however and very safe. It may be a viable option if you don't have far to go and/or live near work, but it's not great for getting from Fgo to Mhd, as it used to go to the central garage to switch buses when going to from one city to the other. I lived in Fgo and worked in Mhd for many years and had a 10-12 minute drive to work. It would have taken me over an hour on the bus, one way.

Thanks to MountainK for mentioning that "it's not great for getting from Fgo to Mhd," If hired, I will plan to drive, but I brought up about the MATBUS because I need to know any alternative way when my vehicle would be in a mechanic store or broken down

One website states "Fargo does not have a parking meters". Is it true? What's about Moorhead?

Some of the college campuses have parking meters in specific parking lots, but no, in general there are no parking meters in either Fargo or Moorhead (they are specifically outlawed in ND). Many of the downtown streets have 90 minute parking, and that is enforced.

Oh, the 90-minute parking could be much better. How do parking enforcement officers know that a vehicle passes the 90-min limit?

It used to be that they used chalk on a long stick and marked the tires as they drove by in the little parking monitor vehicles. Now, I think that they actually used some sort of digital record because you can't just roll a little ways and hide the chalk mark anymore--you really have to move to a different block.

I had a job interview via a videophone on Nov. 22nd. They said they would email me the Background Check form. Now I am waiting to receive it.
