L.E.T.S. is participating in the Universal Reduced Fare Card pilot program in partnership with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council (MDDC), and the Michigan Public Transit Association (MPTA). The reduced fare card allows riders who are issued a reduced fare card by their "home" transit system the ability to receive reduced fare at any participating transit agency in the state (the card holder will receive reduced fare as defined by the agency they're visiting). Please see PDF Documentthis map of participating agencies by county, and call our dispatch office if you have any questions or would like to apply for a card.
