DULUTH, MN– A new shuttle service has hit the streets this weekend connecting people to the heart of Duluth’s craft industry.

‘The Hopper’ is a new service co-founded by Lou Wiggen and Mike LaFaive.

The two describe the business as a complimentary shuttle service connecting the craft industry to the Twin Ports.

‘The Hopper’ is a shuttle van that fits 15 people that make stops at local businesses that have craft tasting opportunities such as Hoops Brewing, Bent Paddle, and Fitgers.

The owners are hoping the loop will be no longer than an hour, with three minutes at each stop for those who want to board the van. Riders can get off an on as they please at each stop.

This weekend was the official launch of the service.

The shuttles first official night was Friday where the owners say they had 37 passengers.  They are anticipating Saturday night will be even busier.

The free shuttle service will run on Friday’s from 5 p.m. to midnight and Saturday’s 3 p.m. to midnight.

The two hope to launch a second van that would tour over the bridge to Superior.
