"Bring a car" Duluth Transportation Tip by kc0ltv

Duluth Transportation: 11 reviews and 7 photos


The vast majority of visitors to Duluth drive in, and you'll probably want a car, or suffer limited mobility. This is because 1) the "international" airport is very limited in terms of regular passenger flights, only to and from DTW (Detroit) and MSP (Minneapolis-St. Paul), and 2), as in most American cities, Duluthians tend to rely on their personal vehicles, and the newer parts of the city and use of public transportation reflect that. The city is also very steep - that could be an advantage, as it would be a great opportunity for the mountain biker to test himself, and even the walker would get quite a hike coming up from near the shore to the top of the hill.

Duluth does indeed have a bus system, the DTA, which works quite well, but might be confusing to some visitors and is not a very fast way of getting around (except perhaps from downtown).

See "walking" and "biking" for information on those subjects.
