LTD’s Free Ride to Cool
August 10, 2021
With Governor Kate Brown declaring a State of Emergency due to a forecasted heat wave from August 10 through 15, Lane Transit District (LTD) will offer free bus service to people traveling to and from designated cooling centers until the declaration is lifted.
Passengers will not be charged a fare if they inform the bus operator that they are going to or returning from a designated cooling center. All other passengers will need to pay fares to travel to and from their desired destinations.
All passengers are encouraged to consider preventative measures for heat exhaustion and for sun exposure, such as using sun block, dressing appropriately, and carrying a water bottle.
As a reminder, all passengers are required by federal regulations to wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth on all LTD buses and property.
