Rider Appreciation Days and Marathon Detour Solutions
Lane Transit District (LTD) will be greeting riders at the Eugene and Springfield stations this week and next week to thank them for riding the bus and to talk with them about how their travel may be impacted during the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 men’s marathon on Sunday morning, July 17, and the women’s marathon on Monday morning, July 18. Both races start at 6:15 a.m.
“LTD is excited to welcome the world to our community during WCH Oregon22, but we also want to make sure our local riders know we appreciate them 24/7,” said Pat Walsh, LTD’s Director of Marketing and Communication. “A gift of appreciation, and an opportunity for riders to talk face to face with LTD staff to identify a solution to a temporary travel detour is the right thing to do during this once in a lifetime event.”
LTD staff will say “thank you” to riders by giving them an LTD-approved cup to bring water or a nonalcoholic beverage aboard the bus. They will also have information available about EmX detours, carpooling, and biking during the marathon races on Sunday, July 17, and Monday, July 18. Staff members will be at the stations on the following dates and times:
- July 7: 7-9 a.m.
- July 11: 4-6 p.m.
- July 8: 7-9 a.m.
- July 12: 4-6 p.m.
