LTD announces Eugene Marathon bus detours

2 min read

EUGENE, Ore. —(Apr. 28, 2022)— Passengers traveling aboard Lane Transit District (LTD) buses Sunday, May 1, 2022, will need to do some extra trip planning when runners and walkers participating in the Eugene Marathon leave the starting line early in the morning. To accommodate the more than 1,000 runners, walkers, and volunteers, six LTD bus routes will be detoured from 8:00 a.m. through 11:00 a.m.

Passengers riding on EmX, along with bus routes 11, 17, 18, 28, and 98, will experience detours and bus stops will be missed along the marathon route. If your bus stop will be missed, passengers are encouraged to request a “courtesy stop” along any of the detour side streets. To request a “courtesy stop,” tell the bus operator where you would like to get off when you board the bus. The bus operator will drop you off at the safest location near your requested stop.

For specific details on how your route will be affected, please visit the LTD.org Service Alerts webpage.

Passengers are encouraged to request a “courtesy stop” along any of the detour side streets. Information about how to request a “courtesy stop” (which is the same as requesting a “night stop”) is available online.

LTD bus schedules are available online.
