DTA Provides Special Evening Service to Head of the Lakes Fair

Published: Expires: 9/6/2016

DULUTH, MINNESOTA (August 24, 2016) – The Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) and the City of Superior will provide special evening service between downtown Duluth, downtown Superior and the Head of the Lakes Fair, beginning Wednesday, August 24, 2016 and continuing through Saturday, August 27, 2016.

The special evening service to the Head of the Lakes Fair will depart downtown Duluth hourly at the Holiday Center time point from 6:15 p.m. to 10:15 p.m., with service along Route 17 towards South Superior. Return trips from the Fairgrounds will run hourly from 6:40 p.m. with the last return trip to downtown Superior and downtown Duluth leaving the Fairgrounds at 10:45 p.m.

This year, due to the Southbound lane closures on the Blatnik Bridge, the shuttle will use the Bong Bridge for trips from Duluth to the Fairgrounds. No shuttle service will be provided to Garfield Avenue in Duluth or to the North End of Superior north of Broadway on trips from Duluth due to this bridge closure.

Trips from the Fairgrounds to Duluth will use the Blatnik Bridge and will provide service along Garfield Avenue.

Daytime bus service to the Head of the Lakes Fair is available on the DTA's regular Route 17 weekday service.

Sunday service to the Head of the Lakes Fair includes DTA’s regular route service to the Fairgrounds on Route 17 from 10:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. The last Route 17 bus departs the Fairgrounds on Tower Avenue at 5:40 p.m. and makes transfer connections in downtown Superior at the Ogden Avenue and 14th Street time point with the Route 16 bus at 6:12 p.m.  Route 16 Duluth-Superior buses also provide service to Superior on Sunday – connecting with Route 17 buses to the Fairgrounds.
