Advance Trip Requests

All trips are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Advanced reservations may be made up to 14 days in advance and must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Advanced reservations means that you are picked up within a 30-minute window, and you receive the lowest eligible fare. RESERVATIONS ARE ACCEPTED MONDAY-FRIDAY FROM 8:00AM-4:00PM by calling 740.681.5086 or online at (For first time users of our self service please contact our office for initial set up.)

Same-Day Reservations

We recognize that personal needs and schedules do not always allow you to schedule your ride at least a day ahead. In that case, Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit offers our same-day reservation service as space permits.

A same day reservation, if space permits, may extend the pick-up wait time. LFPT has a goal to pick-up same day rides within 60 minutes, but there is no guaranteed arrival time. The same day fare is also slightly higher than advanced reservations (see fares).

Please also complete our Feedback Form after your trip so we can continue to provide a quality service for the citizens of our city. 

Also, if you have a complaint, our Complaint form can be submitted to our Service Safety Director. 


Deviated fixed Routes (Loops) 

Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit offers five deviated-fixed routes that run hourly loops Monday-Friday with numerous stops each hour. There are no reservations required, simply be at the stop prior to each stop time (posted) and have your exact fare ready. For detailed route information follow the links below, call our office at 740-681-5086, or see the maps/schedules above.


Connector Services


The MORPC Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program is a free service that assures commuters using alternate forms of transportation to and from work that they won’t be stranded at work in the case of an emergency, illness, or unexpected overtime. It’s a foolproof benefit meant to ease your mind if you rideshare, bike, or bus to work and need to get home quickly.
