Students Ride Free!
UPDATE: Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, students have been able to ride the bus for free by stating to the bus operator that they are students. As schools transition back to in-person instruction, all K-12 students must register for the Student Transit Pass to continue riding the bus for free. Students and parents can visit their school’s office to get a tap card or receive information about using the Umo Mobility app to redeem a Student Transit Pass.
Students must have a pass by December 30, 2021 to continue riding the bus for free.
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 Umo Mobility smartphone app or tap card. This pass allows students to ride LTD buses for free. Students will receive a new pass when registering for school each fall.
Passes will be issued to students through their school and are valid from September 1 of the current school year to September 30 of the following year, giving year-long access to transit.
If you are a student and your school is not enrolled in the program, please ask your school to email Cammie.Harris@ltd.org to begin the enrollment process.
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.
