To purchase an adult student pass, you must have a school ID that verifies you are currently attending a local college, trade school, or beauty school.
Adult student passes are bright red with the COLTS logo on them. In August 2015, COLTS began issuing the white and orange student passes to current students in high school (and younger).
31-day adult student passes may be purchased at COLTS headquarters, the main library branch on Vine Street, Library Express in The Mall at Steamtown, Nancy Kay Holmes Branch on Green Ridge St., and Lackawanna College Bookstore.
The bus stop on the inbound #54 Green Ridge route at the corner of Reese Street and Main Avenue (across from Toyota) has been moved. The new stop is across the street at the Valero/Convenient gas station at the telephone pole by the fire hydrant; a bus stop sign has been placed there.
Three bus stops are temporarily discontinued on Birney Avenue because of construction, affecting route #27 Minooka and #28 Pittston. On the #28 Pittston outbound, there is no pick-up at Long John Silver’s. The bus will proceed to the next intersection and pick up there. On the #28 Pittston inbound, the bus will not pick up at Dunkin’ Donuts. The next stop will be just past McDonald’s, where the construction ends. On the #27 Minooka inbound to Scranton, the bus will not pick up at Dunkin’ Donuts. The next stop will be just past McDonald’s, where the construction ends. These changes will be in effect until road construction is finished. COLTS apologizes for any inconvenience.
The #52 Carbondale bus no longer stops at the Carbondale Senior High-Rise at the request of the Carbondale Housing Authority.
