LakeXpress offers convenient travel to and from Leesburg Bikefest

RELEASE DATE: April 23, 2014

LEESBURG – Other than riding on the back of a motorcycle, the best way to navigate through Lake County during Leesburg Bikefest on April 25 - 27 is in the comfort of a LakeXpress bus.

As in years prior, LakeXpress will be providing convenient shuttle services along U.S. Highway 441, with routes traveling in Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares and The Villages throughout the weekend. In addition, the Gator Harley Express shuttle will run from downtown Leesburg to Gator Harley Davidson at 1745 U.S. Highway 441 every 20 minutes throughout the event.

Fares are $1 each way, $3 for an unlimited day pass, or $8 for a 10-ride pass. Exact change is required. Students with a valid school ID ride free, and seniors and veterans ride for half price with proof of ID. Transfer passes are free for single, one-way trips. Buses are equipped for disabled passengers and have bicycle racks. 

Passengers can catch LakeXpress at any of the 54 special Bikefest bus stops, any current LakeXpress stop, or any safe location along the route by flagging down a bus by raising their hand and motioning to the driver as the bus approaches. Passengers may depart the bus by using the pull cord or notifying the driver of their desired drop-off location. The driver will determine the most safe and convenient location to allow passengers to board or exit the bus.

To find out more about LakeXpress service or routes, call LakeXpress at 352-326-8637, the Lake County Public Transportation Division at 352-323-5733 or log on to www.ridelakexpress.com.
