 Daily Bus Service from the UMD Campus


Jefferson Lines is Offering Daily Bus Service from the UMD Campus to the Twin Cities

On Thursday, March 31, 2005, Jefferson Bus Lines began offering the College Connection, which connects the UMD community as well as Duluth area residents to the Twin Cities and points beyond. The Jefferson Line pick up is right on UMD's campus at Kirby Circle (formerly the DTA bus stop), on Kirby Drive. The service is seven days a week.

The bus leaves UMD each afternoon at 2:45 p.m. and stops at St. Paul, Minneapolis, the Amtrak Station, and the University of Minnesota Coffman Memorial Union, as well as other locations on Interstate 35. The bus leaves the Twin Cities for Duluth each morning. Tickets to the Twin Cities are only $20 each way. Tickets can be purchased on the UMD campus at the UMD Stores, Street Level.
