Lane Transit District will resume collecting bus fare on all routes starting Monday, Feb. 1.
To encourage contactless boarding, TouchPass users will have a special February Rewards Pass available on Jan. 20. New users can download the TouchPass app, or purchase a $3 TouchPass card at the LTD Customer Service Center beginning Jan. 11.
Next month LTD bus riders will also see other changes.
"Passengers boarding LTD buses will notice three things on February 1," said LTD general manager Aurora Jackson.
"Passengers will again enter the bus from its front door, they will pay their fares with cash or the TouchPass mobile app or card, and the bus operator will be sitting behind a plexiglass shield to help reduce the spread of COVID-19."
Passengers riding an EmX bus will enter through the middle and rear doors.
Riders who purchased a March 2020 monthly pass or three-month pass when LTD suspended fares can contact the LTD Customer Service Center after Feb. 20 to obtain a replacement pass by May 31. You must have a receipt or a TouchPass card or account to redeem a pass.
