Winter Service Changes Begin on February 2, 2020

Three times a year, LTD makes route and schedule adjustments to improve service and gain efficiencies. On February 2, 2020, LTD will enhance routes within the system to increase connectivity.

To see the exact changes to your route, go to LTD.org


No Transfer Needed at Springfield Station

Beginning with the February 2 service change, riders will no longer have to transfer EmX buses in Springfield to travel to or from west Eugene and the Gateway area. During peak times on weekdays, the recombined EmX route will provide 10 minute service between Commerce and Springfield Stations. The EmX will return to its 20-minute service in the Gateway loop area as well.


Beginning February 2, 2020, LTD will resume regular bus service within Cottage Grove on weekdays. The LTD bus will again travel from Walmart through the center of town and back to Walmart before departing for Creswell, LCC, and Eugene on all days of the week.

Additionally, LTD plans to extend the pilot program period of the new Mobility-on-Demand service, the LTD Connector, within the city of Cottage Grove: Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m through August 2020. Fares for the Connector are $1 per ride through the duration of the pilot program, and all other LTD fare is also accepted.
