rabbittransit Partners with Delta Leaders to Expand Service

Recently, rabbittransit announced its partnership with Mason-Dixon Community Services in an attempt to increase ridership in the Delta region.

Paratransit, also called Shared Ride, is a convenient, door-to-door public transportation service available in all 67 counties in Pennsylvania. Paratransit connects people to doctor’s offices, grocery stores, senior centers, and other destinations across each county.

After a meeting with several board members of Mason-Dixon Community Services and Delta stakeholders, rabbittransit is expanding its Shared Ride service to include an earlier morning pickup time of 9 a.m.

The goal of the program is to increase Delta residents’ access to healthcare and employment opportunities, which are traditionally found in the greater York area.

For non-life-sustaining or employment trips, the service provides a 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. average arrival time in York with an average return time back to Delta at noon and 3:30 p.m.
