What do bus routes have to do with graduation rates? Perhaps more than you think

The Duluth Transit Authority is holding a public meeting this afternoon (Wednesday, March 27) at 1:30pm to talk about their plan to shut down three of their routes.

But one of those routes is the only one that climbs the long steep hill hill to the new Lincoln Park Middle School and some people think it's more than a  conversation about an unprofitable route.

They think, for an area where 28% of residents don't have access to a vehicle, and over one in five have a disability of some kind, it's a conversation about equity.

More information about the DTA Open House this afternoon can be found here.  Another route,  Lakeside to Miller Hill Mall via UMD (Route 21) is also scheduled to be discontinued June 2.
