From Dallastown to Dover, Wrightsville to Hanover, and just about everywhere in between, rabbittransit has a bus route that will get you where you need to go.
Identifying Your Bus
Each bus route has its own route number and covers a different area. Letters designate the general direction a bus travels (for example, E = East, N = North, etc.) In addition, each route has a regular time schedule to help you determine when the bus will be departing from various timepoints along the route. To find the closest bus stop on your selected route, look for a rabbittransit bus stop sign. On routes 1 through 9, bus stop signs are typically posted every 2 blocks. Stand beside the sign and the bus will arrive to pick you up. Rural routes typically have double digit numbers (for example, Route 12, Route 13, etc.) If you are on a rural route with no bus stop signs nearby, you can flag the bus driver down anywhere on the route that's safe for the driver to pull over. Be sure to stand on the correct side of the road.
Hopping on the Bus
Always try to arrive a few minutes early. Read the electronic signs on the front or side of the bus - they tell you the route number and where it's headed. When the correct bus arrives, put the exact fare or your Hop-n-Go card into the farebox next to the driver. After paying your fare, if there is an empty seat please take it. If you must stand, hold on to a handrail or post. Please remember the front seats are reserved for senior citizens and passengers with disabilities.
As you are riding, pay attention and watch for your stop. About a block before your stop, let the driver know you want to hop off by pulling the cord or pressing the rubber strip between the windows. If you don’t know the area, ask the driver to let you know when nearing your stop.
If you need to take more than one bus to complete a one-way trip, ask your driver immediately for the number of free transfers you will need. Letting the driver know in advance that you need a transfer helps save you time as the driver coordinates with other buses. Transfers are good for one hour. Riders must transfer at designated transfer points.
Leaving the Bus
Remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop. Please use the rear door to hop off the bus. Remember to always check traffic when exiting. Traffic doesn’t stop for our buses like it does for a school bus, so never cross in front of the bus!
Accessibility: All buses are equipped with lifts and kneelers to assist riders traveling with a wheelchair or other mobility device.
Most transfers require a stop at the Transfer Center. When your bus enters the Transfer Center, it will pull into an assigned area marked by the route number. When you hop off the bus, look for the sign with your desired route number and go to that area to hop on your transfer bus. Don’t forget to have your transfer slip handy! Buses depart on the hour and half past the hour.
rabbittransit passenger screens are located at the Transfer Center. These signs display next bus arrival times.
