Published: Expires: 11/30/2016
DULUTH, MINNESOTA (November 22, 2016) – The Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) is once again partnering with the College of St. Scholastica and National Bank of Commerce to offer passengers FREE bus rides on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 24, 2016.
This is the 27th consecutive year that the DTA has provided FREE holiday service throughout the day on Thanksgiving. Historically, only a special shuttle operated on Thanksgiving operated by volunteer bus operators. The full-system Holiday Service with a limited schedule began in 2007. The Holiday Service Schedule for each regular route can be found in the shaded area of the “Sunday” section within the DTA’s passenger hand schedules. More details can also be found online at duluthtransit.com.
The DTA’s Thanksgiving Holiday Service features two special shuttle buses; “Turkey Bus 1” and “Turkey Bus 2”, that will transport passengers directly to the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC) from selected sites throughout the Twin Ports. Look for “Turkey Bus 1” and “Turkey Bus 2” in the destination signs to distinguish this special shuttle service from regular-route buses.
The special shuttles will operate between the DECC and the Duluth Transportation Center (DTC) and other Duluth sites including the Domiano Center and CHUM. In Superior, the special shuttle service will operate from the Royalton Manor, 14th and Tower Ave, Clifford Lund, and Solid Rock Mission.
