(UPPER WILLAMETTE WATERSHED, Sept. 6, 2022) — Lane Transit District (LTD) is encouraging Duck football fans to use one of the District’s 22 free Park & Ride locations to take the bus to the game.
Board the EmX bus at Eugene or Springfield Station, exit at Agate Station, and then take a short walk to Autzen Stadium across the Frohnmayer Footbridge (formerly the Autzen Footbridge).
LTD makes game day travel easy. It is much cheaper than paying for parking and reduces the hassle factor we all experience with after-game traffic congestion.
An LTD day pass for adults is $3.50 and $1.75 for youth. Kindergarten through 12th-grade students can use their free LTD Student Transit Pass for game day bus fare. Passengers 65 years of age or older who have an LTD Honored Rider Pass are also able to ride the LTD bus for free. Fare and pass pricing is available at LTD.org and at the Customer Service Center in Eugene Station.
On days with University of Oregon home football games, detours are in effect on Routes 12, 13, 66, 67, and 96. Please plan extra time for your transit trips on game days and expect delays due to increased traffic. View LTD service alerts online, or follow @LaneTransit on Twitter.
During the Duck football season, the University of Oregon has contracted with private-bus carrier First Student to provide football fans with game day bus service to the stadium from various locations throughout the area. Questions about Duck football bus services can be directed to the UO Athletic Department.
