Recipient of the American Public Transit Association's Gold Award for Safety in 2011, SouthWest Transit whisks passengers to their destinations Monday–Friday. Aboard one of the fleet's 60 black and copper buses, riders can relax peacefully while cutting down on greenhouse-gas emissions and loud honks at rude construction cones. Three Park and Ride lots—including lots in Chaska, Chanhassen, and Eden Prairie—allow commuters to drop cars off securely and ride the rest of the way. A handy online Trip Planner helps with finding the ideal itinerary for traveling to work, school, or the library's hidden underground movie theater, though all available routes can be found on SouthWest Transit's schedule.
The technicians at Auto Hail Pros draw from 15 years of experience to repair dents in automobiles with a process called paintless dent removal. They massage damaged metal from beneath its surface, ironing out dents left by hailstones or ping-pong balls volleyed by a vengeful neighbor. They also offer a convenient pickup and drop-off service and outfit patrons with rental cars for the duration of service. As an added bonus, they back their work with a lifetime guarantee.
The auto-body technicians at Dent Team erase hail damage and other dings from vehicles without having to drill, hammer, or repaint. Instead, they return the metal back to its original shape by massaging the underside of the dent with a special tool.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
