DULUTH, MN--(Marketwired - October 07, 2016) - Jefferson Lines is excited to announce the move to its new location at the Duluth Transportation Center (DTC) on October 11, 2016. The new state of the art DTC facility is located at 228 W Michigan Street in downtown Duluth and is home to local, and now regional and national, bus transportation serving the residents of the Duluth area. The move will ensure passengers departing and arriving Duluth have the convenience of connecting to the city transportation network and allow easy access to the heart of downtown.
To celebrate the move, Jefferson Lines is holding their grand opening celebration in conjunction with Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) and City of Duluth to celebrate Discover Duluth Transportation Day on October 13, 2016 from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm. This event is open to the public and will include live music, refreshments and a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Jefferson Lines depot location.
Kevin Pursey, Director of Marketing at Jefferson Lines, states: "The move to the DTC in conjunction with our partners Duluth Transit Authority, Arrowhead Transit and Indian Trails shows our ongoing commitment to improve and expand our services to Duluth residents. As one of the largest motor coach operators in the country, 95% of the Minnesota residents live within 25 miles of a Jefferson lines service location which exemplifies our commitment to serving the transportation needs of residents throughout the state. We are committed to connecting you to your favorite destinations."
The new Jefferson Lines depot is a full service location with ticket sales, passenger stop for pick up and drops off and package shipping.
