The City of Lincoln wants its team members and the public to remain safe throughout the pandemic. A variety of precautions are being taken to assist with protecting Lincoln’s bus operators every day. StarTran asks riders to enter and exit newer buses through the rear door (buses that have the word "Lincoln" on the side). If riders need to use the lift, they can still enter through the front door. Plexiglass shields help separate bus operators from busy walkways while driving and each bus is disinfected frequently.
VANLNK, StarTran's on-demand transportation service is available for riders who need to social distance. This door-to-door service is $5 per person, per trip for regular shared-ride service. Reservations, payments and cancellations are all handled through the VANLNK app. Paratransit trip scheduling can be completed in the VANLNK app or by calling 402-441-7109.
