How to Ride
Welcome aboard! We are your local fixed route bus service in the Lewis-Clark Valley. When you board the bus be sure to communicate to the driver where you are going and if you will be transferring. If you have any questions that is the best time to ask the driver if possible.
The stop times on the map show the approximate time the bus goes by that location.
To request a flag stop, you must be in a safe, visible location with enough space for the driver to safely pull over and for other vehicles to see you. Let the driver know your intentions by extending your arm and waving up and down. If it is dark outside, please use a flashlight or a reflector to ensure the driver sees you. Please have your fare ready when you board the bus.
Bringing Your Bike
We can accommodate bicycles! However, since there is limited space on the outside of our buses, bicycles are loaded on a first come, first serve basis. When loading a bicycle, please follow these rules:
- Alert the driver before loading your bicycle on the rack.
- Make sure you read and follow the directions on the bicycle rack.
- Load your bicycle from the curb side of the bus.
- Notify the driver when you are ready to leave.
- Exit using the front door of the bus and retrieve your bicycle.
Riding With Children
Children love riding the bus! PTBA wants your ride to be as fun and enjoyable as possible, so here are a few tips:
- Stick together! Hold hands and enter the bus together so no one is left behind.
- Our buses have a couple steps, so please fold your stroller and carry it on with you.
- Do not block aisles and exits.
- Covered drinks are allowed, eating is not.
Holiday Service Closures
The Asotin County PTBA, Lewiston Transit fixed routes and ADA service will not be in operation during the following holidays:
- New Year’s Day
- Martin Luther King Day
- Memorial Day

If we have severe winter weather, it’s likely our schedules will be different. Service can also be disrupted for accidents or other events. Be prepared. Take a few minutes to research alternative travel arrangements and leave yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. Have a backup plan. Buses will often avoid hills or other safety hazards, so plan on needing additional time to arrive at your destination. Your bus may stop at a safer location for drop-offs and pick-ups. Stand back from the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop, because buses may slide sideways in icy conditions.
