Veterans Ride LTD for Free on Veterans Day
Veterans of the United States Armed Forces can ride for free on Lane Transit District (LTD) buses in honor of Veterans Day. Since the holiday is on Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023, Veterans Day will be observed on Friday, Nov. 10. LTD is allowing Veterans to ride for free on both Friday and Saturday.
Veterans need to tell the bus operator that they served in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, or Coast Guard, and their ride is free for these days.
It is important for Veterans who receive 50% or higher disability benefits to know they are also eligible for half-price bus fares aboard LTD buses. Military Veterans aged 65 and over are always eligible to ride LTD buses for free with an Honored Rider pass. Anyone 65 years and older can enroll in the Honored Rider pass program at the Customer Service Center in Eugene Station. More information about fares is available online.
LTD will operate regular bus service on Friday, and regular (Saturday) bus service on Veterans Day. The Customer Service Center will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, and closed on Saturday.
Complete bus schedules are available online.
