    Changes to DTA Schedule Begin February 18th Impacting Weekend Service

    Beginning Sunday, February 18th, the DTA is making a significant adjustment to weekend service.  While seeing significant ridership increases since August’s system launch, the DTA will unfortunately need to reduce service on weekends and pause some routes while making frequency changes to others.  These changes were carefully analyzed, and are designed to keep work schedules manageable the current driver team, maintain continuity of service, and provide an opportunity to recruit and train additional drivers.

    “We understand that these changes can present a challenge for folks with weekend travel schedules and want to assure the public we are aiming for these changes to be temporary.  The key here is to ensure folks know weeks ahead of time what to expect\ and plan their travel for the near future accordingly,” noted DTA General Manager, Rod Fournier.  DTA officials shared that like many other agencies of all kinds nationwide, the recent labor shortages are an ongoing challenge. Adding drivers and returning service to previous levels at some point is at the center of their focus.

    More information and updated schedules are available at www. Duluthtransit.com. Paper hand schedules will also be distributed to the Duluth Transportation Center and other outlets in advance of the changes.  The Transit mobile trip planning app and other tech platforms will also reflect these schedule changes beginning February 18th.

    The following adjustments will begin on February 18th:

    Service becomes a reflection of the Holiday service day expanded to approximately 6am to 10pm.

    Due to that structure, it means no Blue Line, 106, 107, or 113 routes, but an increase in 103 to every 30 minutes.

    Blue Go-Line East/West area covered largely by the 103 coverage.

    Green Line on weekends switches to every 30 minutes versus every 20.

    106 Kenwood Local area covered in portions by either the 105 or the 112 routes.

    107 unfortunately, loses all coverage on the weekends.

    113 unfortunately, loses all coverage during the weekends.

    Weekend service essentially mirrors holiday service, but is expanded from approximately 6:00 a.m. to 10:00pm.

    Holiday service is now comprised of a portion of the weekend service.
