Accounts, Passwords and Security
You may register an account on this Site (including setting up a user identification “user id” and password). You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including your password, and for all activity that occurs under your account. You agree to notify LCTA of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any breach of security. However, you may be held liable for losses incurred by LCTA or any other user of or visitor of the Site due to someone else using your user id, password or account.
You may not use anyone else’s user id or password at any time without express permission and consent of the holder of that account. LCTA cannot and will not be held liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations.
Please note that there may be certain orders that LCTA is unable to accept and must cancel. LCTA reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our fiscal and/or IT departments. LCTA may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. LCTA will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card has been charged, LCTA will issue a credit to your credit card in the amount of the charge.
Credit Card Sales
Once the http://www.lctabus.net web shop has accepted your order, your credit card will be charged. The payment terms are contractual obligation between you and your credit card company. In the event of fraudulent or disputed charges, you must contact your credit card provider and deal with them under the terms and provisions of your contract with them, not LCTA. If a credit card is stolen the maximum liability by law is $50. However, you need to contact your credit card provider under the terms and conditions of your agreement with them to facilitate the dispute process.
While LCTA strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, pricing or typographical errors may occur. LCTA cannot confirm the price of an item until after you order. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to an error in pricing or product information, LCTA shall have the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is priced incorrectly, LCTA may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.
Quantity Limits and Dealer Sales
LCTA reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may be applicable to orders placed by the same LCTA account, the same credit card, contracted service, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. LCTA will provide notification to the customer should such limits be applied. LCTA also reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers. It is illegal to sell LCTA fare instruments/media unless under specific contract with LCTA to do so.

Thank you for visiting the Luzerne County Transportation (“LCTA”) Web site. LCTA collects personal data only if you buy from us online, or subscribe to our e-mail or text messaging notification subscription service. LCTA only uses this information for fulfilling your requests.
LCTA is committed to respecting the online privacy of its website visitors. This statement discloses the privacy practices for this website only. Included in this statement is an explanation of:
- Information Collection and Use;
- What types and categories of information can be gathered;
- How is the information gathered;

Information Collection and Use
LCTA does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 nor does it wish to collect any such information. Federal law requires website operators who wish to obtain information from children under the age of thirteen to get parental consent. However, LCTA, in its effort to protect the privacy rights of children, will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 even in the event that parental consent is obtained. If we determine that a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information in violation of this policy, we will delete that information as soon as practicable.
What types and categories of information can be gathered?
LCTA can gather two types of information about you. The first is “Personally Identifiable Information”. This is defined as any information that could be reasonably used to identify you, including but not limited to your name, shipping address, billing address, phone number and e-mail address or any combination of that information. The second type of information is “Tracking Information”. Tracking information is defined as the information recorded as users navigate throughout the website. Tracking information is not used to identify but rather statistically to rate pages and track preferences of visitors.
LCTA may also gather Personally Identifiable Information about you regarding your purchase. When you order a pass or ticket through our site, we will collect the following information to properly complete your order: your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, shipping information and credit card information. We use a reputable company to verify your credit card information before billing your account. We will also share your shipping information with the delivery service (U.S. Postal Service). Your order is processed through a secured server using advanced forms of encryption software.
If you do not supply personal information for one of the purposes listed above, we make no attempt to identify you. LCTA only tracks aggregate usage data to help us improve site content and organization.
Credit card information is not stored on the My Account – Profile but, instead, is stored on a per transaction basis. Credit card information is transmitted in encrypted manner and you will only see the last four digits of the credit card number on the transaction receipt you receive. The credit card information is will not be retained on LCTA’s database after the transaction is complete.
How is the information gathered?
Information is gathered through the use of website browser “cookies”. A website cookie is a parcel of text sent by a server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses the server. They are used for authenticating, tracking, and maintaining specific information about users.
There are “session-based” cookies that are used for tracking purposes. Session-based cookies are automatically disabled or deleted once the visitor closes his or her browser software at the end of the session. There are also “persistent” cookies. Persistent cookies remain stored on the registered user’s computer system until he or she deletes them.
Visitors may disable cookies through most standard browsers. Remember the persistent cookies are solely to simplify your experience. The session-based cookies are used solely for tracking purposes so that we can bring you a more enjoyable online experience. Cookies don't identify you personally, but rather identify your computer when you visit our site. It can be used to identify your session at a particular web site. If you are concerned about privacy, you may set up your browser not to accept cookies, or you can delete them from your hard drive once you leave the site. Turning off cookies may affect your ability to use this website.
How is information used once gathered?
In any such case, LCTA will limit the scope of the disclosure and restrict the disclosures only to the appropriate authorities. We will limit such disclosure to only that Personally Identifiable Information that is reasonably required to fulfill the purpose of the disclosure. Unless instructed by the court or other proper authority, we will take reasonable efforts to (a) notify you of the disclosure or request for disclosure, and (b) provide you with this notice as far in advance of the disclosure as is reasonably practicable. If LCTA acts in proper accordance with the procedures in this section, it cannot be held responsible for the proper recipient’s later use of that information.
How does LCTA protect your Personally Identifiable Information?
All information is stored within a database controlled and accessible only to LCTA and its specifically authorized contractors. Even with effective measures of security implemented by LCTA, no security system is impenetrable. LCTA cannot guarantee the complete security of its system, nor can LCTA guarantee that information supplied would not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. If you do not want LCTA to know any particular piece of information about you, then do not include it either in e-mail or do not post it to the website.
LCTA uses the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) to guarantee encryption during the online purchase process. This is to protect the transmission of credit card and other Personally Identifiable Information relevant to the purchase. LCTA will store Personally Identifiable Information regarding your registration information, but not your credit card, for your future use. No security is perfect, so if you feel uncomfortable providing your credit card or other Personally Identifiable Information over the Internet, do not do so. In order to purchase, you must use a browser that is SSL-enabled (e.g. Microsoft® Internet Explorer™, Mozilla® Firefox®, Apple® Safari™). A secured purchase is signified by the term “https:/” in the browser. A lock will appear in the corner of the bar of the browser illustrating that a secured transaction is taking place. For customers who do not wish to give out credit card information over the Internet, LCTA has physical locations to purchase tickets at the Wilkes-Barre City Intermodal Center and LCTA Administrative Headquarters, 315 Northampton St., Kingston, PA 18704.
Links to Other Websites
As a convenience to its visitors, LCTA may offer features in conjunction with other providers. LCTA’s website might contain hyperlinks to other websites whose privacy practices and policies LCTA does not control. The inclusion of an external link on this website does not constitute or imply support or endorsement of any kind.
If you send an e-mail that includes personal information, we use the information only to respond to your e-mail. However, we may forward your e-mail to another agency if we believe that agency is better prepared to answer your question. We do not use information received in e-mails to create personal profiles. We do not give or sell e-mail information to others for commercial purposes. By visiting the LCTA web site, users agree to comply with the LCTA terms and conditions policy.
Compliance with State and Federal Law
