LIFT Program

LIFT Program Beginning January 2022!

The Low Income Fare Trips (LIFT) program is designed to assist members of the community with incomes at or below 150% of National Poverty Guidelines with their transportation needs. It is a self-certified, low-income program that will allow eligible riders up to four day passes per month.  Riders will have the ability to use one day pass per week, on the day of their choice.  Passes will be available on a first come, first served basis.  Initially, the program will offer 500 day passes per month.  Full fare and reduced fare riders are eligible to apply for the program.
