Students Ride Free!
UPDATE: As schools transition back to in-person instruction, students will continue to ride for free until September 30, 2021. When boarding, students will simply tell the bus operator that they are a student and do not need to present a TouchPass/Umo Mobility co-branded tap card or fare on the Umo Mobility app. Visit your students’ school when registering this fall to receive the free Student Pass for the upcoming school year.
Free Transit Pass for Students Grade K-12
All K-12 students in Lane County can get their free LTD Student Transit Pass from their school, using either the TouchPass mobile app or tap card. This pass allows students to ride LTD buses through September 30, 2021 for free. Students will receive a new pass when registering for school in the fall.
Passes will be issued to students through their school and are valid from September 1 of current school year to September 30 of the following year, giving year-long access to transit.
Private schools wishing to participate in the Student Transit Pass program, may call 541-682-6118 or email.
The goal of the Student Transit Pass is to help families by reducing transportation costs and the demands on parents to transport their children to school and activities. An additional goal is to create life-long transit users, which reduces the impact of single occupant vehicles on the environment.
Free student transit fares are made available through a grant to LTD from the State of Oregon’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) approved through House Bill 2017.
