The Duluth Transit Authority says they are changing their service beginning April 5 as the city prepares for the challenges of COVID-19. According to a press release, the DTA will change their weekday service to the be the same "limited" schedule that they have been using on Saturdays.

Routes 4 and 5 will continue to be canceled and route 15 will remain as the "dial-a-ride" format. If a Park Point passenger calls the DTA information line, it will be forwarded to the DTA dispatcher and a show up operator will use a small Stride van to transport that passenger from their bus stop to DTC, or to a stop between their bus stop and DTC only. Return trips will run only from DTC to their bus stop. 

Sunday's schedule will remain unchanged.

Riders should be aware that the last trips of the evening Monday through Saturday are just after 9:00 p.m., leaving downtown.  The last trips of the evening on Sunday are just after 7:00 p.m. also from downtown.

A shuttle will be offered daily from 10:10 a.m. to 6:10 p.m., departing Miller Hill Super One for Menards and Walmart at :10 and :30 past each hour. | DTA A shuttle will be offered daily from 10:10 a.m. to 6:10 p.m., departing Miller Hill Super One for Menards and Walmart at :10 and :30 past each hour. | DTA

The DTA says a shuttle will be offered daily from 10:10 a.m. to 6:10 p.m., departing Miller Hill Super One for Menards and Walmart at :10 and :30 past each hour (see map attached) in an effort to connect these areas impacted by the schedule modifications.
