LeeTran to resume regularly scheduled routes Sunday

By Staff | Oct 8, 2020

Lee County Transit (LeeTran) will resume regular service of its fixed-route buses beginning Sunday, Oct. 11.

LeeTran also will reactivate two routes that have been inactive since March due to the pandemic:

* Route 80, serving the Edison Mall and Bell Tower Shops areas

* Route 160, serving Pine Island on Thursdays

This is a final step in resuming services that the county had altered in response to COVID-19. LeeTran resumed collection of fares on its fixed-route buses and ADA Passport services Sept. 8 and also began letting riders board at the front of the buses. The county has installed driver shields and customer-service safety barriers, resumed selling fare passes and reopened its Rosa Parks Transit Center and LeeTran Headquarters.

Riders who qualify for senior or student discounting on bus fare now can obtain a new special Tap and Go discount photo ID card at the Rosa Parks Transportation Center.

Riders are asked to continue to observe recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control for social distancing. For more, visit www.leegov.com/COVID-19.
