Services During COVID-19
Linn County’s top priority is the health and safety of employees and the public. That is why Linn County offices will reopen July 20 on an appointment-only basis as part of a phased approach to reopening. Linn County will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and adjust County operations and safety measures as needed.
Many County services can be conducted online or remotely through email, mail, our drop boxes, or over the phone. To schedule an appointment or ride with LIFTS, please call 319-892-5170 or email LIFTS@linncounty.org.

In an effort to limit public interactions and protect the health of riders, Linn County LIFTS is prioritizing rides for essential needs, such as trips to the grocery store, employment, or medical needs.
Linn County LIFTS is a public transit service providing door-to-door rides for eligible elderly and disabled citizens in the metro area of Cedar Rapids, Marion and Hiawatha, and public transportation to all Linn County residents outside the metro area.
LIFTS is a paratransit service, with priority given to people who are unable to use city buses because of a disability or a disabling health condition.
LIFTS was established by Linn County and the City of Cedar Rapids to meet transportation requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
