The goal of this rider guide is to help new people, or people that haven't been on a bus for a while the information they need.
The guide is split up into different sections so you can read the whole thing or just the sections that apply to you.
This is meant to be an easy to understand guide that will show how easy it is to ride the bus.
The Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) is one of the safest and technologically advanced public transit systems in America.
The DTA provides regular route services, along with curb-to-curb services for disabled riders with STRIDE (Special Transit Ride) in Duluth, Proctor, and Superior, Wisconsin.
DTA buses are equipped with Intelligent Transportation Systems that monitor operations for efficiency and improve customer services. Buses are equipped with accessible ramps for wheelchair riders and have "kneeling" capabilities for easy boarding. Buses are equipped with surveillance cameras for added security, along with bicycle racks from April to October.
Riding the DTA is convenient for many Twin Ports residents, as nearly 80 percent live within walking distance of a bus stop.
The DTA operates 20 routes which are incorporated into 16 schedules. There are more than 2,000 bus stops throughout the Twin Ports. Bus stops are marked with boarding signs (see sample on right). Boarding signs display "route numbers" indicating the routes passing the stop.
Transfers are free and valid for one hour after being issued; but many buses continue to popular destinations after passing through downtown Duluth where no transfers are needed.
Commuting is convenient with peakhour services designed to get you to work or school on time. Low fares and unlimited-ride passes make riding the DTA an economical option for everyone.
The mission of the Duluth Transit Authority is to provide a public transit service that is safe, convenient, efficient and affordable.
