Getting around Becker County has become a lot easier in the past few years thanks to several public services that are happy to bring you where you want to go.


Rob and Roxanne Fairbanks started DL Taxi Service in June of 2006. The service serves all of Becker County, and according to Rob Fairbanks, the entire state.
