EmX Rider Guide
The Emerald Express (EmX), named after the region’s Emerald Valley, serves the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area and is one of the first BRT systems to operate in the U.S. EmX began in 2007 and now serves 28 system miles, traveling between west Eugene, downtown Eugene, the UO, downtown Springfield and the Gateway and the RiverBend areas. This service is the backbone of LTD’s public transportation service, carrying 13,000 riders a day* and connecting to other bus routes as well as Park & Ride locations and bicycle-pedestrian pathways.
As a part of LTD’s continued effort to increase efficiency while meeting ridership demand, the EmX Gateway will operate on a 15-minute service frequency on weekdays, while the Eugene line will retain the same 10-minute service frequency. Evening and weekend service will remain unchanged on the Eugene and Gateway EmX lines, with 15-30 minute service frequency
On Monday through Friday during the day, a rider traveling from Eugene to Gateway, or vice versa, will now need to deboard at the Springfield Station and transfer to the EmX going to Eugene or Gateway.
On Monday through Friday evenings and all day on weekends, riders can travel on a single EmX bus to any EmX station location.
