The Safe Ways to Pay

Fare collection on all modes of service resumes October 1, 2020.   Laketran is working hard to create safer ways to collect your fare during the Covid-19 pandemic.  You can read our full annoucement here.

Local Route & Park-n-Ride

Laketran encourages all Local Route & Park-n-Ride riders to download the EZfare app for a contactless and convenient way to pay your fare.

Validators –  To encourage social distancing and reduce interaction with the bus driver or fare box, Laketran installed onboard validators for you to simply “tap and go” when paying your fare with your smartphone. EZfare can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play.

Partner Apps – Do you already have an account with national mobility apps Transit, Moovit or Uber?  You can now plan and pay for your Laketran trip in any of these national apps.  These apps also provide real-time arrival information along with helpful transit tools.

We hope you’ll considering using EZfare or one of our partner apps to pay your fare.



Dial-a-Ride transitioned to a prepaid service. There are no longer fare boxes on Dial-a-Ride buses. Fare payment will be taken when you schedule a reservation by phone or online with Request-a-Ride.
