LTD Restarts Modified McKenzie River Service
January 20, 2021
Residents who live along the McKenzie River will have modified daily LTD bus service on Route 91 beginning Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021. Bus service was suspended in September due to the Holiday Farm Fire.
Passengers need to be aware of Route 91 service modifications from the pre-Holiday Farm Fire Schedule, including:
- Departing from the Eugene Station, Monday through Friday at 7:20 a.m., 2:20 p.m., and 5:35 p.m. and will leave McKenzie River Ranger Station at 8:51 a.m., 3:58 p.m., and 7:21 p.m.
- Departing from Eugene Station on Saturday and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and will leave McKenzie Ranger Station at 9:59 a.m. and 6:01 p.m.
- The 91 will not serve Blue River Drive or McKenzie River Drive.
- LTD is not charging passenger fares on the 91 until April 1, 2021, but beginning Feb. 1, 2021, Route 91 passengers will need to pay fares to transfer from the 91 to other LTD bus routes.
“Bus operators will pick up and drop off passengers only at the designated bus stops along the highway,” said Cosette Rees, LTD’s Director of Customer and Specialized Services. “Passengers should not try to flag down the bus between bus stops for pick up, so it is important for passengers to plan and to be extra careful walking to and from the bus stops along Highway 126.”
