Major Transit Enhancements, Sept. 2017
Major enhancements to the community’s transit service begin September 17. This includes the third Bus Rapid Transit line, known as EmX, enabling travelers a comfortable one-seat ride between Beltline, downtown Eugene, the University of Oregon, Springfield and the RiverBend-Gateway area. Other LTD bus service in west Eugene is redesigned to provide riders shorter travel times, better connectivity and more options to get where they want to go.
EmX Service Expands
The launch of the third EmX line will extend the community’s nationally recognized Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system to 24 round trip miles and connect to 30 other LTD bus routes. EmX, short for Emerald Express, operates similar to light rail but at a fraction of the cost. It is the backbone to LTD’s public transportation system with frequent service, quick boarding, comfortable stations, real-time bus arrival information and other amenities. For details, click here.
