Bike racks back on DTA buses
Published: Expires: 4/1/2009
(March 16, 2009) The Duluth Transit Authority has reinstalled bike racks on buses and has resumed transporting passengers with bicycles today.
Last year, DTA buses transported an all-time record 20,107 bikes over its 7-month season. That was a 25 percent increase over the previous year.
All DTA buses are equipped with front-end bike racks with a capacity to carry two or three bicycles – depending on the model of bus.
No additional passenger fare is required when transporting bicycles.
The DTA introduced Bike & Bus in the spring 1994 in an effort to expand customer services and meet the growing popularity of cycling in the Twin Ports. Since then, the Bike & Bus feature has become increasingly popular.
