General Information
Description of ProgramThe Luzerne County Transportation Authority (LCTA) offers a Shared-Ride service. That means in most cases you will ride with others and other passengers may be picked-up and dropped-off before you reach your destination.
The service provided is Curb-to-Curb and most Shared Ride vehicles are equipped with wheelchair lifts. Drivers will assist passengers on and off vehicles and, if needed, to their destinations.
