Lane Transit District Adds Back Service In Cottage Grove and Reconnects Springfield EmX in Gateway
Media Contact: Pat Walsh
Adding this service on Route 98 will have no impact on the LTD Connector, the mobility-on-demand pilot program in Cottage Grove. It continues to operate Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Fares for the Connector are $1 per ride through the duration of the pilot program, and all other LTD fare is also accepted. Riders can schedule a ride for the Connector using the TransLoc app on their personal mobile device or by calling South Lane Wheels at 541-942-0456 ext. 1. The Connector pilot program has been extended through August 2020.
Also, beginning on February 2, bus riders will no longer need 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.
In addition to these bus route adjustments, specific route information is available in the latest edition of the LTD Rider’s Digest available on all LTD buses, in the Downtown Eugene station, and online at ltd.org/service-changes.
