Passengers who brought their bikes with them did not have to pay a fare on the bus.

It’s done for national Bike to Work Day, encouraging people to try bicycle commuting.

DTA officials say not only is riding the bus safer and more efficient but you can also save big bucks.

“By utilizing the bus system as a means of transportation to get to work you can save up to $8-10,000 a year,” DTA marketing Director Heath Hickok said. “I think we can all save $8-10,000 somewhere else.”

Through the month of May anyone who rides the bus, bikes or walks instead of driving and documents it via Facebook with the hashtag #busbikewalkduluth will be entered into a weekly prize.
