DTA to discontinue token fares on January 1, 2009
Published: Expires: 12/31/2008
Riders encouraged to use tokens before they lose value
The Duluth Transit Authority will not accept tokens as a valid fare beginning January 1, 2009.
The DTA currently values small tokens at 50 cents and large tokens at 35 cents; and accepts single or multiple tokens towards fare payment.
When fares were increased in 2005 and a new electronic fare collection system introduced, the DTA discontinued sales of tokens and notified the pubic that tokens will eventually be phased out.
The DTA presently accepts tokens towards fare payment or in combination with cash.
The DTA will not redeem tokens for cash. However, the cash value of tokens can be transferred to a fare card at the DTA Operations Center at 2402 W. Michigan Street during weekday business hours.
