RiverCities LIFT

(360) 442-5667

RiverCities LIFT is a curb to curb public transportation service for those persons whose disability limits their ability to ride the fixed-route independently.

LIFT is a “safety net” for people who cannot use the Fixed Route service (big blue buses) by themselves because of a disability. RiverCities has worked hard to make our Fixed Route accessible. It is intended to be the main mode of public transportation for everyone in Longview and Kelso, including people with disabilities. All Fixed Route buses are wheelchair accessible with ramps or lifts, securement areas, and both visible and audible stop announcements.  For more information on RiverCities LIFT please see the Paratransit Service Plan

How to Apply

Eligibility for RiverCities LIFT is determined by submitting the below application. Applications are available at the Longview Transit Center or by requesting one at (360) 442-5663. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.
