- All buses in the Lafayette Transit fleet are ADA accessible.
- Most buses kneel or lower to make it easier to get on and off the bus.
- All buses have accessibility signs, including the International Symbol of Accessibility and kneeling bus signage.
Priority seating for people with disabilities and senior citizens is located in the seats directly behind the bus operator.
100 percent of the buses in Lafayette Transit's fleet have audio stop announcements that identify major intersections and transfer points. There is also a visual display.
All new buses have security cameras on the inside and outside.
Lifts and Floor Ramps
- All buses either have a low floor ramp or are lift-equipped.
All new buses that LTS purchases are low floor ramp buses. As these new buses arrive, older lift-equipped buses are phased out.
The ramps on low floor buses can be manually operated if the hydraulic system fails, for 100% reliability.
Two wheelchair securement areas are located near the front of each bus and include tie downs and lap belts for safety.
The wheelchair securement areas also feature an accessible yellow button so a customer can alert the bus operator that the bus is approaching his or her stop.
Lafayette Transit also operates a paratransit service for those that can't use the regular bus.
