Information about Lexpress history, ridership, and current operations.
All Lexpress buses are ADA compliant and come equipped with wheelchair lifts. The maxium lift capacity is 800lbs. The lift's clear platform is 33" wide by 51" long.
Service animals are allowed on Lexpress at all times.
During off-peak hours (8:00AM - 2:30PM & 4:20PM - 6:30PM), non-service animals are allowed at the discretion of Lexpress vehicle operators. Animals must be properly leashed or contained, and are not allowed to annoy riders. For safety and convenience during rush hours (6:30AM - 8:00AM & 2:30PM - 4:20PM) we can only allow small domestic animals carried in lap-sized containers. The carrier must be out of the way of exits, and cannot take up a seat.
Every Lexpress bus is equipped with a bike rack in the front that can hold two bikes. Bikes are not allowed inside buses unless they can collapse to the size of a standard piece of luggage. Check these helpful steps (pdf) to make your next trip by bike and bus seamless and stress-free.
Lexpress can accommodate riders with carriages or carts. However, riders with wheelchairs or motorized mobility aids have first priority in the accessible seating area.
Outside of Town Center, riders can get off anywhere along the route where it is safe to pull over. Before you reach your stop, pull the stop cord located on the sides of the bus, or tell the driver verbally where you wish to get off. Please remain in your set until the bus has come to a complete stop.
