Westmoreland County Transit Authority (WCTA), or shortened to Westmoreland Transit, or WT is the transit operator in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.

In addition to conventional bus service (primarily commuter runs), there is also a paratransit service branded "Go Westmoreland".

Between 1978 and 2012, operations were managed by Forsythe Transportation; in 2012, operations were transferred to National Express Transit, a British multinational public transport company.[1]

Routes

Most Westmoreland Transit buses operate Monday through Friday, however, some also have limited services on Saturdays, as noted next to each route.

Westmoreland Transit buses do not operate Sundays and statutory holidays.

Connections to other agencies

Westmoreland Transit offers connections to other transit agencies in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania. It connects to a number of Port Authority Transit buses in the city of Pittsburgh, and select suburban locations; and Westmoreland Transit's route 11 connects with CamTran buses across from the CamTran Transit Center in Johnstown.
