The Duluth Transit Authority and Jefferson Lines presented the inaugural Discover Duluth Transportation event at the Duluth Transportation Center on Oct. 13. This event commemorated the grand opening of the Jefferson Lines ticket counter at 228 W. Michigan St.

The $30 million Duluth Transportation Center opened earlier this year. Jefferson Lines moved in Oct. 11 and has closed its terminal on Grand Avenue in West Duluth.

At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Duluth Mayor Emily Larson proclaimed the day as "Jefferson Lines Day in Duluth."

Jefferson buses go throughout Minnesota and to Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Tickets and other information may be found at jeffersonlines.com or by calling (800) 451-5333.
