Beginning Monday, July 1, 2019, COLTS will only honor the GREEN card (pictured below) for Marywood students, faculty, and staff, as per Marywood officials, to ride COLTS at no cost. The green card can be obtained at the Student ID office in Marywood’s Madonna Hall.
#31 Old Forge/Stauffer *(NEW as of July 1)
#12 Jessup *(NEW as of July 1)
#21 East Mountain *(NEW as of July 1)
The #12 Jessup has an official added stop on the schedule at Marshwood Road on the 7:25 a.m. outbound trip only. Additionally, some time points were adjusted to allow customers to make better connections.
The #21 East Mountain will have an added trip in the morning leaving the Lackawanna Transit Center at 6:35 a.m. and returning from Lutherwood at 6:57 a.m.
The bus will no longer go into St. Catherine’s on the following trips: 9:57 a.m., 10:57 a.m.,12:57 p.m., and 1:57 p.m.
#31 Old Forge / Stauffer:
COLTS will service Stauffer Industrial Park via the #31 Old Forge bus. The existing #29 Stauffer route will be eliminated.
The following weekday outbound trips from the LTC will service Stauffer: 6:15 a.m., 7:15 a.m., 8:15 a.m., and 2:15 p.m.
The following weekday inbound trips from Old Forge will service Stauffer: 7:05 a.m., 8:05 a.m., 3:05 p.m., 4:05 p.m., and 5:05 p.m.
Trips that service Price Chopper will NOT service Stauffer. Service to Stauffer is Monday through Friday only.
Until our new 10-ride ADULT passes come in, COLTS is selling bundles of five 2-Ride Passes. The passes are our OLD orange 2-Ride passes (see below) and they do work in the fare boxes. The packs are $15.75 and will only be sold in bundles of five.
The small yellow temporary booklets our riders may have purchased in the past week are still being accepted but will no longer be sold.
In the coming weeks, our customers will see a gradual change in our schedules from color to black and white. We have made this decision in an effort to save money. COLTS is facing a funding crisis with the privatization of MATP and loss of funding from the Turnpike issue. We can assure you that the schedules are just as beautiful in black and white as they were in color!
On the #52 Carbondale schedule, the Main and Wayne (Archbald) time point should be :25 past the hour, not :28 past the hour.
Starting April 1 and until further notice, the #31 Old Forge INBOUND will use the following detour:
Bridge St. to left on Bowen St., left on Center St., right on Drake St. and on to regular route.
Pictured below is the new 31-day pass. The blue passes with orange writing will still be accepted as long as they are in circulation; some COLTS fare outlets still have a stock of them to sell.
