Star Tran To Resume Fare Collections

Lincoln, NE (October 3, 2022) Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) today announced StarTran will resume fare collection beginning Monday, October 17. Bus passes are available for purchase beginning today.

StarTran paused fare collection in April 2020 to offer relief to community members during the pandemic. StarTran did not collect fares for nearly two-and-a-half years.

“Lincoln’s transit system connects community members to jobs, food, education, medical services, and more,” said LTU Director Liz Elliott. “StarTran’s success is the community’s success. By resuming fare collection at a lower price, we will maintain a healthy transit system and continue to use those funds to reinvest back into the program.”
