Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit Becomes Official Fairfield County Department


LANCASTER, OH — The Fairfield County Commissioners are delighted to announce that Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit (LFPT) has officially become a county department. This strategic move aims to enhance public transportation services, ensuring more efficient, accessible, and reliable transit options for the residents, visitors, and workforce of Fairfield County.

LFPT has long provided safe and affordable transportation across Fairfield County, particularly excelling in meeting the transportation needs of local employers and their employees. Offering curb-to-curb demand response and six deviated fixed routes, LFPT is an accessible option for individuals with disabilities and serves a variety of community members. This includes young adults looking to save on gas, families experiencing car trouble, and the elderly needing transportation to medical appointments. This comprehensive service supports the local workforce by providing reliable and convenient transit options, helping employees commute efficiently and on time.

Fairfield County Commissioner Steve Davis remarked, “This is a significant milestone for our community. Integrating Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit into our county structure affirms our commitment to providing exceptional public transit services and meeting the transportation needs of our workforce and employers. This change will support economic development and enhance the quality of life in Fairfield County.”

The Fairfield County Commissioners will immediately begin collaborating with the Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit team, including LFPT’s new director, Aaron Kennedy, to enhance the current public transit system and improve the quality and reach of transit services across the region.

“We are excited about the opportunities this transition presents,” said Kennedy. “With the support of Fairfield County Commissioners, we look forward to expanding our services, improving our infrastructure, and meeting the growing transportation needs in our community.”

This integration marks a new chapter for public transportation in Fairfield County, promising improved services and greater accessibility for all residents.
