Jump to navigation Jump to search

Rabbit Transit provides public transit service in the city of York and surrounding York County, Pennsylvania. It is an operating subsidiary of the Central Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (CPTA), which was known as the York Adams Transportation Authority until 2016.

In addition to transit service within York, RabbitEXPRESS commuter service is operated, connecting with Capital Area Transit in Harrisburg and MTA Maryland in Baltimore.

Rabbit Transit Blue is the branding for transit service in the borough of Gettysburg. It was previously known as Freedom Transit, another operating subsidiary of the CPTA. The re-branding began in May 2019 and was completed by early 2020.

Between 1931 and 1977, service in the York area was provided by the York Bus Company.
