MAINLINE DULUTH SERVICE: The DTA will be providing fixed route service in Duluth along Grand Avenue and Superior Street from 57th Avenue West to 24th Avenue East from 10:40 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. This bus will board passengers at all bus stops along the route.
SPECIAL SHUTTLE SERVICE: In addition, the DTA will be providing direct shuttle services at selective locations in Duluth and Superior, Wisconsin, including: CHUM Drop-in Center; Domiano; YWCA; Harbor View; Morgan Park Manor, Solid Rock Mission (6th Street and Weeks); Clifford Lund (914 Tower Avenue); Royalton Manor (1900 New York Avenue); Peter Rich Center (1201 N. 8th Street); and center-city bus stop at 14th and Tower.

According to DTA General Manager Dennis Jensen, "There was an overwhelming response to help with the annual Thanksgiving shuttle again this year as more drivers signed-up to volunteer than were actually needed."
