Getting to Know LTD
Welcome to Lane County! Lane County stretches from the coastal town of Florence to Willamette National Forest at the edge of the Cascade Mountains. Along the I-5 corridor, you’ll find the Eugene-Springfield metro area, the central service area of Lane Transit District. The McKenzie and Willamette Rivers flow through the region, providing opportunities for outdoor adventure and scenic views. Eugene is home to the University of Oregon, where academics and athletes from around the world gather to innovate and compete at the highest level.

Do you have physical or mobile-friendly bus passes?LTD provides convenient access to fares through the free smartphone app, Umo Mobility. If you don’t have a smartphone or prefer physical bus passes, purchase a day pass at one of the ticket vending machines on an EmX platform or pay cash when boarding a fixed-route bus (exact change is required).
How do I pay for fare on EmX?
All LTD passes are accepted on EmX buses. EmX Day Passes are available for purchase at EmX platform ticket vending machines and are also accepted on regular LTD buses. Hold on to your EmX ticket! There is no need to present your EmX ticket to the operator, but be prepared to show a fare inspector if asked. If you are using a digital pass in the Umo Mobility app, please have the pass visible on your phone screen and ready to be scanned by a fare inspector if asked.
Which pass should I get if I’m here for the weekend? A week? More?If you plan to take a round-trip or multi-way bus ride, purchase a Day Pass. If you plan to be in town for more than 14 days, a 1-Month Pass makes more sense. To learn more about passes and pricing, click here.
