Duluth: Transportation

Approaching the City

The Duluth International Airport, located six miles from downtown, is the destination for most air traffic into the city. Domestic and international commercial carriers schedule daily flights into the passenger terminal.

Duluth is the terminus point for Interstate 35, which extends from the United States-Mexico border into northern Minnesota; federal highways providing easy access into the city include U.S. 53, 61, and 2. State routes running through Duluth are 23, 39, and 194.

Traveling in the City

Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) provides public bus transportation throughout the metropolitan area with a fleet of 65 modern transit buses. Among the DTA's special services are A Special Transit Ride (STRIDE) for handicapped passengers and carpool and rideshare programs. The DTA operates the Port Town Trolley, a downtown circulator, during the summer months. Visitors may also explore the city on horse-drawn carriages or via the Canal Park waterfront tram.
