A partnership announced in February 2019 between the College and the Lehigh and Northampton Transit Authority (LANta) provides transportation at no cost to current students, faculty and staff with a valid Lafayette College ID (scanned when boarding). LANta bus service operates 363 days a year and provides reliable and consistent access to the Easton Bus Terminal, with stops along Cattell Street on College Hill as well as the Giant Plaza and Weis Market in Forks Township using Route Number 214. In addition to these routes, members of the Lafayette community may board any LANta bus, making the entire Lehigh Valley accessible.
