DTA offers holiday service July 4 in Duluth, not SuperiorThe Duluth Transit Authority will operate a limited holiday service schedule for regular route and STRIDE services on Wednesday, July 4.
The Duluth Transit Authority will operate a limited holiday service schedule for regular route and STRIDE services on Wednesday, July 4. There will be no service in the city of Superior.
The DTA introduced the operation of holiday services in Duluth in 2011 with a limited service schedule – similar to the Sunday level of service on all major holidays including July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, New Year’s Day and Memorial Day. Holiday service, however, will only be provided in the City of Duluth; not in Superior, where additional funding for holiday services is not currently available. Prior to New Year’s Day 2011, the DTA had not provided holiday services since the early 1970s.
Holiday service schedules are highlighted on the Sunday section on all passenger hand schedules and on the DTA website – www.duluthtransit.com.
Port Town Trolleys to provide service to Bayfront 4th Fest
In an effort to accommodate the Bayfront Fourth of July festivities, the DTA will operate two Port Town Trolleys on its regular route from noon to 8 p.m. on July 4 – circulating every 15 minutes between downtown Duluth, Fitger’s, Canal Park and Bayfront Festival Park.
The trolleys will provide direct service to Bayfront Festival Park on July 4th with a special stop on Railroad Street. However, Harbor Drive will be closed to all traffic during the Fourth Fest and the trolleys will not be able to serve the Great Lakes Aquarium, the Excursion Dock, the S/S Irvin or Lakes 10 Theater on July 4.
The Port Town Trolley fare is 50 cents. Unlimited-ride Trolley Day Passes are available on the trolley for $4. DTA passes and stored value fare cards will also be honored on the Trolleys with children under the age of four riding free of charge.
