This week, Great Lakes Aquarium, the Duluth Transit Authority and the DECC celebrated the first run of Route 24, the Aquarium/DECC Loop that brings year-round bus service to the harbor side area.
Mascots, animal ambassadors and representatives from the Duluth businesses and community organizations joined together to kick off the new service.
Great Lakes Aquarium is committed to creating a culture of diversity, inclusion, and accessibility for visitors, employees, volunteers, and interns.
In order to make these values a reality, Aquarium staff is making significant efforts to engage locally with individuals and organizations to remove barriers for participation and provide a welcoming experience for all people.
In addition to the new route, the DTA and Aquarium unveiled a new marketing partnership which features an Aquarium bus wrap and interior bus signage.
Route 24 is a pilot program for the DTA’s fixed route service. It began running Monday, August 26 and will be re-evaluated for continued service in six months time. It runs hourly, six days a week Mondays through Saturdays. You can learn more about the schedule here.
