Take the SurveyAs part of its Annual Route Review, Lane Transit District (LTD) is proposing to increase some fares and increase some transit service.

LTD gathers input from employees, riders, and the general community in developing system improvements evaluated as part of the Annual Route Review process. The process takes place from October through May and includes multiple ways for customers and the general public to provide input and feedback. This year, LTD is happy to report that they are proposing the addition of bus service that improves the span and frequency of existing routes, new neighborhood service, and the addition of holiday service. These improvements will create the opportunity for riders to better connect to the important people and places in their lives.


LTD proposes to change its fares as follows:

$1.75 $3.50 $16.00 $48.00
Youth (ages 6‑18) &

LTD proposes to leave one-way ticket, day pass and 10-ride ticket book fares unchanged. LTD last increased these fares in 2012.

LTD proposes to increase adult 1-month pass fares from $48 to $50 and by similar amounts for youth, half-price and 3-month passes, effective July 2014. This is a 4% increase, or 1% per year over the last four years since the last increase in 2010.
