Lextran is committed to serving people with disabilities. We back this committment by providing services that make public transportation both easy and affordable for people with disabilities.
Lextran is proud to offer a bus fleet that is 100% Lift-Equipped. This means that all of our buses are friendly to passengers who use wheelchairs or mobility devices.
Our current Lift systems can accommodate up to 800 lbs. and incorporate a special lift barrier and belt for maximum safety. All buses have 3-point tie downs and most have shoulder belts that control forward and side movements.
Also note that while all of our buses are wheelchair accessible, not all stops are. Get to know your stops. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
Currently, we recommend that people with disabilities requiring the lift service arrive up to 15 minutes before the bus arrives. Please review our Wheelchair Accessible Bus Service Instructions for more information.
Reduced Fares for the Disabled
Reduced fares are available to people with disabilities, by obtaining a Lextran ID Card. You can obtain an ID card at LexTran's transfer station in the Transit Center or at the Transit Authority offices at 109 West Loudon, Monday through Friday. To qualify for the reduced fares and to obtain your Lextran ID card, you will need to file an application, including a signed statement from a health professional.
Reduced fares are currently $0.50 per ride with an ID Card, or $15 Monthly for a Disabled Pass. You must present a Lexrran ID card to your bus operator for these reduced fares.
