LeeTran unveils new TripPlanner online
LeeTran now has on online TripPlanner that will give you exact instructions to reach your destination, along with a map. All you have to do is put in your starting and ending points and it will plan your transit trip. There's also a feature that will give you real-time arrival information for Fort Myers Beach trolleys, called "NEXTbus".
LeeTran is also working with Google Maps to provide the Lee County data so that their transit map planner is functional for Lee County. We'll keep you posted!
LeeTran is sponsoring Find Your Ride Day, which will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 19 at the Rosa Parks Transportation Center from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The public is invited to learn more about public transit, see how buses are accessible to the disabled, and connect with community resources, such as vanpooling, carpooling and other transportation providers.

"LeeTran has bike racks mounted on the front of every bus and trolley. The racks are easy and safe to use, and there is no extra charge. Each rack holds two bikes. You must be able to load and unload your bike without assistance, because the driver is not able to leave the bus."
