EmX Bus Rider Tips

Riding EmX is slightly different from LTD’s regular bus service. Use the following tips to guide your ride.

Advanced Fare Collection

Fares for EmX are the same as regular bus service, but must be purchased in advance of riding. Each station has a ticket vending machine to purchase fare. Credit/debit cards or cash are accepted, but the ticket machine cannot give change. Valid LTD fare is accepted on EmX, and EmX day passes are accepted on regular service. Purchase your ticket well in advance of the EmX arriving; this process can take 30-45 seconds.

On Board Bike Parking

When riding EmX with your bike, enter through the back door, place your bike in the rack and secure it using the fastening straps. Pay attention as others board with bikes as you may need them to move their bike so that you can remove yours.


Board with all your possessions at the same time; don’t leave something on the platform as the doors can close without warning.

Need a Ramp?

If you need a ramp to bridge the distance between the platform and the bus, notify the operator.


Children in strollers are welcome on EmX. Be sure the stroller does not block the aisle. If the aisle is blocked, you may be asked to fold and stow your stroller.

On-Bus Announcements

An announcement will keep you informed as you approach each station, including which side of the vehicle to exit.
