SouthWest Transit is a public transportation agency that is based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. The agency was created in the 1980s to improve public transit for the rapidly developing communities of Eden Prairie, Chanhassen and Chaska. Bus service was added to Victoria in the early 2000s. Bus service runs from about 4:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
