We're honored to have received Ohio Public Transit Association's inaugural 2021 Collaborative Excellence Award given to a transit system to honor a collaborative partnership the improves lives in their community. We were recognized for our Senior Food Delivery program during the COVID Stay at Home order that grew into the Lake County Mobile Food Pantry program. In 2020, we provided over 220,000 lbs of fresh produce to seniors in Lake County and we continue to have distributions each week.

We share this honor with the Board of Lake County Commissioners Senior Services , Greater Cleveland Food Bank, Lifeline, Inc. , United Way of Lake County, Lake County Council on Aging

We are proud and honored to serve.

Thank you to everyone who joined us today for the dedication of the Frank J. Polivka Transit Center. The rain cleared just in time and we had beautiful weather! 🙌🌥

Frank’s vision set the groundwork for Laketran to become a customer-driven transit agency nationally recognized for our innovation and our Dial-a-Ride service.

He has left a lasting impact on Lake County and the transit industry. We are honored to name this transit center after him. #Laketran #MoreThanJustABus #LakeCountyOhio

Clara Maurus was one of the founders of Laketran. I found this picture and decided to share.
So I have a question. Why is it every GPS gives instructions on where to turn in feet, but the Laketran Dial-A-Ride buses tell the drivers where to tune in meters?
On Tuesday July 21, 2020 at 9:50 am bus 1052 ran a red light on rt 615 at the intersection of 615 and 2. Coming off of rt 2, the car in front of me and I had to stop our left turn to allow the bus to go first.
Hey, what's with the nifty new sign markers along Lakeshore? Is this the Route 8 that was in the works? If so, when does it start?
God Bless🙏 Lake County and Laketran. You are a Blessing🙏💯and Appriciated😍😘
When you are driving(stopped at red light) behind your favorite bus driver while heading to the office during COVID-19 lockdown. Yes I did pull over and say hi to him!
I have a family member who rides Laketran ro work. What precautions are being implemented on the buses for public safety to help protect riders from the virus?
When will laketran start this program?
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to one of your drivers who went above and beyond this morning. A transportation company dropped a dialysis patient off at the wrong facility and this patient understood and spoke very little English. Your driver Douglas helped us get this gentleman inside from the cold and stayed in our lobby with the patient calming him down and explaining things to him for over 15 minutes. This wasnt even a Laketran patient. If it hadn't been for Douglas I would have had to call Mentor PD because the patient was getting very upset and angry and not understanding what we were saying to him. Thanks again Douglas!!!!
Your supposed to have ALL STROLLER CLOSED UP..& STORED.. NOT.. BLOCKING HANDICAP SPOTS. !!!
UNACCEPTABLE. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND & BLOCK THE AISLE..WHILE BUS IS MOVING..
You do need to hire drivers.!! Ones that actually follow the rules..!! Not like these one who let people block the aisle by allowing people to stand while bus is moving
