DTA’s Port Town Trolley Is Up And Running For The Summer In Downtown Duluth
It’s a sure sign of summer when you see/hear three things in Canal Park. The 4-person canopy bicycles chugging along the lakewalk, the clippity clop of the horse drawn carriages and the Duluth Transit Authority‘s Port Town Trolley back in service. The nostalgic look of the trolley just adds to our city’s enchantment! The last time I was in the Trolley was when friends had rented it to get their wedding party from rehearsal to the North Shore Scenic Railroad for the rehearsal dinner. It was a great way to keep the group together. Plus, the out-of-town guests had no worries finding the NSSRR and we didn’t have to worry about parking.
The Trolley will circulate every 30 minutes between downtown Duluth, Canal Park and Bayfront Park. They plan to operate on a daily basis from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the summer until Labor Day. The Trolley stops at all downtown bus stops along West Superior Street including: the Holiday Center and Radisson Hotel. The Trolley also serves the Depot Heritage Arts Center & Railroad Museum, Bayfront Park, Great Lakes Aquarium, Vista Fleet Excursion Dock, S/S William A. Irvin, the DeWitt-Seitz Marketplace, Maritime Visitor Center/Aerial Lift Bridge and other locations along Canal Park Drive.
You’ll save money on gas getting around downtown Duluth! Trolley fare is only 50 cents – Trolley Day Passes sold on Trolley for $4. Children four and under ride free. You can purchase your Unlimited-ride Trolley Day Passes at the Downtown Transit Center.
