LeeTran to "LinC" with Collier
On Oct. 6, commuters who cross the county line will have a new option: taking LeeTran's new LinC bus and connecting to the Collier Area Transit (CAT) system.
The LinC bus will travel from Coconut Point Mall down to Immokalee Road in Collier County. There it will connect with CAT's Red Route 1 at the Creekside Business Park, approximately every 90 minutes.
At the same time, LeeTran will start a new east-west route running from Lovers Key State Park to the Publix at Bonita Grande Crossing.
These two new routes will replace the current 150 route serving Bonita Springs and provide better service to the community.
The LinC bus will charge the same fare as all other routes and will honor all LeeTran passes. Riders who transfer to a CAT bus will need to pay Collier's fare, which is $1.50 for adults or $.75 for seniors. For more information about Collier Area Transit, click here.
