Grocery Bus Trial Run Starting in September
There has been a demand for a public bus to not only bring people to the grocery store, but also to help accommodate grocery designated areas on the bus.
The DTA will have a 4-month trial run of the grocery bus starting September 1st which will contain bins where passengers can place their groceries. The bus will travel along Superior and West Third streets in Lincoln Park and along Grand Avenue in West Duluth. The bus will even travel to Morgan Park and the rates will stay the same.
I think this is a fantastic idea. For many people a bus is their only transportation and it's hard trying to hold a bunch of grocery bags on your lap while on the bus. Hopefully the trial will go well and the 'grocery express' will be here to stay.
