LCT receives funding from the NCDOT/Public Transportation Division and the Federal Transportation Administration by applying for grants from these organizations. Recipients of FTA funds must comply with Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Section 601. Title VI states that “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
In October of 1994 the Lenoir County Board of Commissioners established the Transportation Department and Lenoir County Transit to provide coordinated human services transportation. This service was provided though contracting with third party transportation providers. In the first year, the Transportation Dept. had a fleet of 6 vehicles and provided approximately 13,000 trips. In March of 2008 Lenoir County Transit (LCT) began operations in-house. During that time, LCT was operating with a fleet of 15 vehicles and provided approximately 54,000 rides per year. Today, LCT operates with a fleet of 18 vehicles and provides an average of 300 rides a day, approximately 6,500 rides per month and maintains operations through state and federal grants and revenue generated by providing transportation.
