Duluth Transportation Center
The Duluth Transportation Center was designed to improve transportation services and support downtown development and provides a central location for bus transfers; combines a variety of multimodal transportation services including pedestrian, bicycle, bus and motor vehicle; and provides access to several buildings via pedestrian skywalks, including the Northwest Passage spanning over the interstate.
The new Transportation Center houses eight bus loading bays, a police substation, four levels of parking (416 spaces), secure bicycle storage, and four separate skywalks connecting to adjacent buildings. Other features include electric vehicle charging stations, solar panels, steam heated floor slabs, covered passenger waiting areas, snow melt system, and capacity for future Light Rail development.
