Linn County LIFTS (LIFTS) will resume collecting bus fares on Thursday, July 1, 2021. LIFTS suspended fares on March 18, 2020, as one of many safety measures put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Passengers are still required to wear face masks per federal TSA rules. Additional enhanced safety measures include disinfecting buses nightly, extra cleaning during the day, and installing bus operator cabin partitions throughout the entire fleet.
“Safety is our top priority, and we continue to work tirelessly to protect our customers and bus operators. We thank passengers for their patience and for doing their part to keep everyone safe,” said LIFTS Director Tom Hardecopf.
One way fares on Linn County LIFTS are $3. Rides can be purchased with cash (exact amount only) or check when boarding the bus. Ride tokens can be purchased from any LIFTS driver or at the LIFTS office at 5815 4th St. SW, Cedar Rapids. Each token is good for a one-way ride.
Customer service representatives are available to answer questions and assist riders with token purchases. For more information, call LIFTS dispatch at 319-892-5170, email [email protected] or visit the LIFTS website.
