Services During COVID-19
Per federal law, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires proper wearing of face masks on public transportation. Face masks are to be worn at all times while riding LIFTS buses. Failure to comply may result in denial of rides on Linn County LIFTS.
Linn County LIFTS is a public transit service providing door-to-door rides for eligible elderly and disabled citizens in the metro area of Cedar Rapids, Marion and Hiawatha, and public transportation to all Linn County residents outside the metro area.
LIFTS is a paratransit service, with priority given to people who are unable to use city buses because of a disability or a disabling health condition.
LIFTS was established by Linn County and the City of Cedar Rapids to meet transportation requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
