Published: Expires: 3/13/2009

  • Revise Miller Hill Mall services – Introduce Mall Area Shuttle
  • Add Saturday service to West-to-the-Mall Route 5
  • Expand service at Stone Ridge Shopping Center
  • Add Sunday service to Walmart

  • Route 8 to Fitger’s to be discontinued

The Duluth Transit Authority is proposing to revise services and adjust schedules to accommodate growing ridership demands and in preparation for major road construction that will begin this spring in the Miller Hill Mall area. Most DTA schedules will be affected in some way by these revisions. All schedules will be revised and reprinted; except for route 18. Riders are advised to obtain new pocket schedules, which will be available at the Downtown Transit Center and area schedule outlets prior to this service change.

Proposed service changes at the Miller Hill Mall

Due to major road construction scheduled to begin in the Miller Hill Mall area this spring, the DTA is proposing to revise the way it serves the Miller Hill Mall area. All buses arriving at the Mall will terminate at the Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop, with the exception of a few early morning and late night buses. The DTA will introduce a Mall Area Shuttle for service beyond the Miller Hill Mall. Walmart and the Airport will be served by Route 5 buses; except on Sundays when they will be served from the Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop.

Mall Area Shuttle service in the Miller Hill Mall area

The Mall Area Shuttle will provide service every half an hour between the Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop, Penney’s (New Stop), Village Mall, K-Mart, Target, Burning Tree Plaza and Super One. Transferring to and from Mall Area Shuttle bus will be timely. The Mall Area Shuttle will be waiting at the Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop when buses arrive from and depart to downtown. The Mall Area Shuttle will operate every half an hour from 8:50 a.m. to 6:50 p.m. during weekdays; 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays; and from 10:25 a.m. to 5:55 p.m. on Sundays. DTA riders will be able to ride the Mall Area Shuttle with a valid transfer or the Mall Area Short Hop (MASH) fare of 25 cents.

Saturday service added to West-to-the-Mall Route 5 schedule

Saturday service will be added to Route 5 between the Zoo at 71 A.W., Miller Hill Mall Bus Stop, Walmart and the Airport.

Sunday service to Walmart from Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop introduced

Hourly Sunday service to Walmart will be provided from the Mall’s Bus Stop, Walmart and the Airport on an hourly basis from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday service times to Walmart will be posted on the Mall Area Shuttle schedule.

Sunday service to Airport from Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop

Hourly Sunday service to the Airport will be provided from the Mall’s Door 8 Bus Stop on an hourly basis from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday service times to the Airport will be posted on the Mall Area Shuttle schedule.

Service to Stone Ridge Shopping Center expanded

All Route 10 and 10H buses will be routed through the Stone Ridge Shopping Center, with the exception of five late night trips. This will greatly expand DTA service running through the Stone Ridge Shopping Center as service to Home Depot / Olive Garden will be eliminated due to low ridership.

West Mainline service expanded during weekdays

West Mainline service will be expanded to provide 15 minute service during weekdays between 59th A.W. & Grand Avenue and downtown Duluth.

West Mainline Route 1 service will be interlined with Route #10 buses during midday hours for direct service to the Mall on weekdays

West Mainline Route 1 buses will be interlined during midday hours with Route 10 and 10H buses during weekdays.

Route 1 operates between 71 A.W. and downtown Duluth.
