DTA and sponsor Fond-du-Luth Casino are encouraging the public to “Play it Safe” on New Year’s Eve and take advantage of the FREE extended service after midnight in Duluth and Superior.
The DTA and Fond-du-Luth Casino have partnered to provide FREE DTA service all day on Saturday, December 31 with FREE service extended on the busiest routes as late as 1:50 a.m. on New Year’s Day to accommodate those celebrating New Year’s Eve.
The DTA and Fond-du-Luth Casino are encouraging the public to “Play It Safe” on New Year’s Eve by riding the bus! All major areas in Duluth and Superior will be covered with special “after midnight” bus service for New Year’s Eve.
The DTA appreciates the generosity of the Fond-du-Luth Casino in paying all fares on December 31 and sponsoring the extension of service after midnight.
