LYNX requires any eligible passenger the opportunity to travel on local bus service or NeighborLink to use a discounted fare. Upon boarding a bus, eligible riders must present a LYNX issued ID to use the discounted fare. Failure to do so will result in you having to pay the full fare.
Passengers wishing to obtain an ID may visit the LYNX Central Station Terminal Lost & Found Window Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
To receive a Youth ID (ages 10 - 18 or still in high school) you must present a birth certificate or government issued ID (e.g., driver’s license, state ID card or passport). Riders age six and under may still ride free when accompanied by an adult (full or discounted fare). No more than three children may ride free per adult. Children six and under must pay $1 when not accompanied by an adult.
To receive an AdvantAge ID (age 65 and over) eligible passengers must present a Medicare card, birth certificate or government issued ID (e.g., driver’s license, state ID card or passport).
People with medical disabilities, regardless of their age, must go through a certification process to receive the AdvantAge ID card.
Attached below is the application form for people with medical disabilities that needs to be downloaded and completed by your physician and submitted to LYNX. The information will be used to determine if you are eligible to receive/renew an AdvantAge ID card for use on LYNX’ local bus routes or PickUpLines.
Please follow these directions carefully:
- Print clearly and fill out the section of Part 1 and 2 of the application that applies to you. Attach a copy of your Medicare card if applicable.
- Have your physician fill out and sign Part 3 of the application. If you have a Medicare card, it is not necessary for your doctor to complete part 3.
