Getting to the airport is going to get easier for Lane’s 120 Aviation Academy students. It’s also going to be easier for anyone taking LTD. Lane Transit District’s new Airport Connector, a bus route to Eugene Airport, will connect to Route 95, streamlining the process of the commute.
The route is the result of a partnership between LTD, Eugene Airport and Lane Community College. When Lane’s Aviation Maintenance program was founded, students worked out of Building 10 on Lane’s Main Campus. “They used to fire up engines back there, and they used to land planes in Lane’s parking lot,” Advanced Technology Division Dean Patrick O’Connor said.
