Port Town Trolley returns for summer on Sunday, June 7
Published: Expires: 6/20/2009
Trolley route shortened to maintain frequent service
The Duluth Transit Authority will return the Port Town Trolley to the streets of Duluth for the summer beginning Sunday, June 7. Due to downtown skywalk construction and the closure of Lake Avenue this summer, the Trolley will operate on a revised route in an effort to maintain timely service. The new route will eliminate service to all locations east of Lake Avenue.
As a result of the shortened routing revision, Trolley schedule frequency will be improved from 30-minute service to 20-minute service.
The Trolley will circulate every 20 minutes between downtown Duluth, Canal Park and Bayfront, and will operate daily from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the summer until Labor Day.
Trolley routing will be along West Superior Street between Lake Avenue and Sixth Avenue West, the Bayfront and along Canal Park Drive. The Trolley will stop at downtown bus stops along West Superior Street including the Holiday Center and Radisson Hotel and provide service to the Depot Heritage/ Arts Center & Railroad Museum, Bayfront Park, Great Lakes Aquarium, Vista Fleet Excursion Dock, S/S William A. Irvin, Duluth 10/Omnimax Theaters, shops and hotels along Canal Park Drive, including the DeWitt-Seitz Marketplace, Canal Park Lodge, Hampton Inn, Inn on Lake Superior, Comfort Suites and the Maritime Visitor Center/Aerial Lift Bridge.
Trolley fare is 50 cents - Trolley Day Passes sold on Trolley for $3
The Trolley fare is 50 cents with children four and under riding free. Unlimited-ride Trolley Day Passes are available for $3 on the Trolley and Downtown Transit Center.
