A variety of public
transportation options are available to all Cumberland County residents
through the County Transportation Department, Capitol Area Transit, and
other private providers. Several "reduced fare" programs are available
through the Aging & Community Services.
Cumberland County Shared Ride Program (60+) Our agency assists persons age 60 and older access transportation to medical and social service agency appointments, senior centers, grocery shopping, work, banks, pharmacies, public libraries, laundromats, volunteer work, and visiting immediate family members who are in a hospital or nursing facility. These trips are usually limited to locations within Cumberland County, and are provided at no cost to you.
Capitol Area Transit (CAT) Bus Service (65+) If you are age 65 or older, you can ride any CAT bus free between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. any weekday and all day Saturday and Sunday under the Pennsylvania Free Transit Program. To ride free you will need a senior citizen transit identification card, available free from CAT. An acceptable proof of age document must be shown to obtain the identification card. To request an application for the Free Transit for Senior Citizens Program, or for more information, please contact Capitol Area Transit.
Persons with Disabilities (18-59) If you are a person with disabilities who does not have access to a CAT fixed route service or cannot ride CATs fixed route service due to your disability, this "Shared Ride" curb to curb pilot program may be for you. One-way reduced fares are available at all times and apply to all origins and destinations.
ACCESS Card Holders If you have a valid ACCESS card issued from the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, you may be eligible for free transportation to certain medical services.
