Duluth Transit Authority to Restore Significant Service - Effective May 24th
DULUTH, MN, (May 20th, 2020) - Effective Sunday, May 24th, the Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) will implement a return to 83% of normal service from our current 45% level. This comes in response to the State and organizational guidelines allowing for broader activities to resume in accordance with the “Stay Safe” measures now in effect.
The DTA encourages all passengers to wear masks on our buses and in facilities, board from the rear door, take essential trips only, and practice social distancing with proper hygiene. The following routes will remain paused or reduced as follows:
Further, late evening service will once again continue with temporary curtailment. The last buses leaving the downtown area on weekdays and Saturdays will be 9:20 p.m. On Sunday, the last buses leaving the downtown area will be 7:00 p.m. Route 15 will be a on demand service for the entirety of the route 15 service day. When a Park Point passenger calls the DTA information line, it will be forwarded to the DTA dispatcher and a bus operator will use a small DTA Stride van to transport that passenger from their bus stop to DTC, or a stop between their bus stop and DTC only. Return trips will run only from DTC to their bus stop.
- Route 4 – Completely paused
