NEW THIS YEAR! FREE BUS PASSES FOR ALL K-12 STUDENTS
This school year, LTD will provide free transit passes to students in grades K-12. LTD is currently working with local school districts to finalize the program. In the meantime, students will simply show their student identification card to ride for FREE until October 1. If a student cannot obtain an ID card right away, they will just let the bus operator know the school they are enrolled in when boarding the bus.
In addition, so that parents can help their student(s) learn how to ride the bus with confidence, parents can ride the bus for FREE while taking their students to or from school for the entire month of September.
Additional information about the student transit pass will be available later this fall when the program fully rolls out.
Funding for this program is made available through a grant to LTD from the State of Oregon’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF).
By January the goal is that all students who wish to have a pass will have an electronic fare card, or mobile app that they will then use for their pass for free.
