    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

     
    Duluth Transit Authority to Return to Traditional Fare Collection

    Duluth, MN, September 15th, 2020, After successfully installing Plexiglass driver-protection barriers on the fleet, the DTA is set to resume standard passenger fare collection on Thursday, October 1st.  The move follows a recent return to front-door boarding and other measures related to safe operations.  Passengers will find the same fare structure and payment procedures that were in place before the current stretch of covid-19-related free service began on March 18th.
     
    DTA General Manager Phil Pumphrey noted: “We were very pleased to procure and install these barriers across our fleet of buses.  They will provide a layer of protection for our drivers, and give us the opportunity to collect revenue which helps keep our system running.”   
     
    Pumphrey added “It is important to us that we not increase fares, and keep our service affordable and efficient.  Without some revenue, the organization would lose access to important state and federal resources which support system improvements, new vehicles, employee wages, and other needs that we have throughout the year.”
     
    “The DTA is also in the midst of training bus drivers, which will give us the needed capacity to resume service on Routes #4, #15, and #25(DuLooper), all of which will reactivate on Monday, September 28th.”  Assistant General Manager Rod Fournier said.
     
    More information on this announcement will be available at www.DuluthTransit.com.
