LEE COUNTY, Fla. — LeeTran is now offering a contactless fare payment option.

The new LeeFare app is available for Apple and Android mobile devices. Search “LeeFare” or “Lee County Transit Mobile App.” Once the app is successfully installed on their device, passengers can create accounts to load fares and manage fare balances. Fares loaded through the app are available immediately for use.

When a passenger is ready to pay a fare while boarding a bus, the app generates a QR code for a quick tap and go contact-free boarding experience.

The Board of County Commissioners approved an agreement that now allows riders to use LeeFare to plan their trip, pay fares, and manage their accounts using the app on their mobile device.

Passengers receive up to five free transfers while using the app as long as the transfers occur while traveling in one continuous direction.
