The Wheels service is a pay-as-you-go program that collects exact cash, checks or pre-paid passes when boarding. When both the origin and destination are within ¾ of an area mile of an operating Lextran fixed-route, there is a charge of $1.60 per one way trip. If the trip is outside of this range, a premium rate of $2.00 per one way trip is charged.
A Wheels pass is a prepaid ticket to ride the Wheels bus. Passes may be purchased by contacting (859) 233-3433. There are several convenient pay options available: credit or debit card over the phone, check or money order via mail or given to any Wheels driver. Passes can be ordered on a periodic basis and mailed to your home address. Please allow 5-7 business days for processing.
For your convenience, there is a Rider’s Guide to Wheels that explains the operations of the program, frequently asked questions and policies. The guide can be downloaded or you can also request a copy by calling (859) 233-3433 ext. 1339.
