How to get around the Lehigh Valley for a month for about the cost of a gallon of gas – lehighvalleylive.com

With Pennsylvania’s average cost for a gallon of regular gasoline up to $4.44 as of Thursday, according to AAA, LANTA has a deal for those looking to save some money.
The Lehigh And Northampton Transportation Authority announced Thursday it will continue to run its full schedule of daily service, under the discounted fare structure established during the coronavirus pandemic.
It was nearly two years ago, amid ridership depressed by COVID-19, that the authority announced a steep price cut for its 31-day passes.
The 31-day pass normally costs $60 but has been discounted to $10, said AJ Jordan, LANTA’S manager of planning and scheduling. However, when purchased from LANTA’s online store or the Token Transit app, the price is further reduced to $5, Jordan said.
“For about the cost of a gallon of gasoline commuters can buy a 31-Day Pass when using any online payment method,” LANTA Executive Director Owen O’Neil said in a news release. “That allows passengers to take unlimited bus rides during 31 consecutive days.”
A full schedule of fares is available at lantabus.com/fares.
Seniors ages 65 and older ride free anytime on LANTA buses by showing their yellow or blue PA Senior Travel ID. An application for the PA Senior Travel ID is available at lantabus.com/applications or by calling 888-253-8333.
