Lackawanna County

The County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) will implement minor changes to three of its routes on Monday, July 1, 2019. The changes will make these routes (#12 Jessup, #21 East Mountain / Oakmont, and #31 Old Forge / Stauffer) more customer-friendly and efficient. They will also improve connections with other bus routes.  

The current #29 Stauffer Industrial will be eliminated, but the Stauffer Industrial Park will be served by the #31 Old Forge / Stauffer nine times each weekday.

“We constantly review our routes and make sure that we are best serving our customers,” said Bob Fiume, Executive Director.  “These changes will make our system more efficient and cost-effective.” The specific changes can be found on the COLTS web site at coltsbus.com, on signs on all COLTS buses, and on flyers at the Lackawanna Transit Center. Paper schedules will be available soon.
