Duluth Transit Authority Running Emergency Mainline Service Only Thursday
As expected, the Northland took another pounding Wednesday night into Thursday, which officially makes this storm a Top 10 two-day snowfall event in Duluth.
Driving around the Duluth area remains a challenge for many and the Duluth Transit Authority announced early Thursday morning they will continue to run their Emergency Mainline Service throughout the service day.
According to their website, the DTA implements Emergency Mainline Service when winter weather conditions do not allow the DTA to safely operate its full fixed-route service schedule.
As far as routing goes:
Weather Emergency Buses will depart from New Duluth (Commonwealth Avenue and McCuen Street) to Lakeside (61st Avenue East and Superior Street). Buses will travel on Grand Avenue, West Third Street and Superior Street between New Duluth and Lester Park.
The DTA says the following schedule details remain place when only Emergency Mainline Service is available:
