Description of Program
The 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.
Hours of transportation service for most programs are from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The STEP program operates 5:00 a.m. until 7:10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:50 a.m. to 6:05 p.m. on Saturday.
