DTA Transports Fewer Passengers In 2013

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The Duluth Transit Authority saw ridership fall by over 66 thousand passengers in 2013 over the previous year.  DTA officials attribute the harsh winter during the early spring last year and the colder than normal November and December as having a negative impact on passenger volume.  The popular U-Pass program at UMD also decreased and that is attributed to the discontinuance of Route 20 and the opening of a new student housing complex located next to the campus on Woodland Avenue.  The decline in passenger volume also resulted in a corresponding decrease in revenues collected.
