from Lane Transit District
LTD will pick up and deliver Eugene Emeralds fans from the parking lot to the stadium using a six-passenger electric vehicle.
The service is free, part of a marketing agreement that allows LTD bus pass holders to purchase two home game tickets for the price of one.
“LTD and the Eugene Emeralds have been providing excellent service to the Eugene/Springfield area for years,” said Allan Benavides, General Manager of the Eugene Emeralds. “We are excited to offer an affordable ticket deal for riders of LTD, and grow our community.”
The Eugene Emeralds are the High A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.
LTD passengers who have a current Monthly Pass, Student Transit Pass, Honored Rider Pass, Group Pass, or Quarterly Pass can purchase two game tickets for the price of one at the Emeralds box office at PK Park.
“Just show your tap card or Umo app to the person selling tickets,” said Pat Walsh, LTD’s chief marketing officer. “We encourage all LTD bus pass holders to take advantage of this offer to enjoy Emeralds games with family and friends.”
LTD television and social media commercials will be played on the stadium video scoreboard and LTD staff will attend six home games to inform fans about bus service and job opportunities with LTD.
The two-for-one ticket offer is not available to those with a day pass or those who pay cash to travel aboard LTD buses. The offer is also not valid July 3-4, or for playoff games.
Bus pass holders do not need to take the bus to the game to take advantage of the offer, but are encouraged to check out bus schedules and to consider carpooling, bicycling, or other mobility options.
The Eugene Emeralds game schedule is available at https://www.milb.com/eugene/schedule/.
The e-vehicle was previously used for the EmGo service.
“LTD is excited to partner with the Emeralds to provide another mobility option for fans who need one,” said Walsh. “This partnership is an example of the mission LTD shares with the Emeralds to connect our community.”
Lane Transit District is a special district of the State of Oregon led by a seven-member volunteer board of directors appointed by Oregon’s governor. LTD’s budget is funded through a combination of fares, taxes paid by local employers and employees, and from state and federal sources.
LTD connects the community using 30 fixed bus routes and two EmX Bus Rapid Transit lines. LTD’s paratransit service, RideSource, matches service with transit needs for people with disabilities and Medicaid recipients.
