DULUTH - The Duluth Transit Authority wants to provide passengers a better experience by increasing their security reach.In anticipation of building a new transit center, the D.T.A. has requested that the Duluth City Council approve an expansion of an ordinance that has allowed D.T.A. employees to manage behavior on buses for many years.
This extension would cover not only behavior in buses, but also behavior in shelters and the new transit center.
“We think that’s important because currently there’s a lot of activities occurring basically between the downtown transit centers on public sidewalks that we don’t really have any control on,” Dennis Jensen, general manager of the Duluth Transit Authority, said.
Currently, the only ordinance that covers D.T.A. shelters is a no-smoking ordinance in the downtown shelters.
