Public transportation, often called mass transit, tends to cater to the masses. rabbitCARES was developed and operates today based on the premise that we need to be responsive to the individual rider, not just the masses. That is, we need to address not what we assume is the need, but what we hear are the needs- from the riders themselves.
Mission: rabbitCARES, the charitable organization of rabbittransit, is a nonprofit organization advancing affordable and convenient mobility solutions that allows all Central Pennsylvania’s residents to connect to their most basic needs.
Vision: Creating a community where everyone has mobility opportunities.
Values: The 4 I’s of rabbitCARES: Individualism, Innovation, Inclusion, and Integrity.
- Offers a link for riders to easily reach and inform decision-makers of existing barriers
- Builds inclusion and collaboration into our work so that we can address needs identified by the partnership
- Works with the partnership to identify solutions to the needs/barriers and then seek funding sources to support those efforts
- Provides a mechanism to serve populations that fall outside of traditional transportation funding streams.
Priority Transportation: Veterans Transportation, Access to Food, Medical Transportation
rabbitCARES, formerly known as 3P Ride, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed on December 28, 2017, in affiliation with the Central Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (dba. rabbittransit). rabbitCARES developed during an eighteen-month inclusive planning process supported in part as a demonstration project through the Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) “Transit Planning 4 All” initiative. Our partnership is comprised of over 40 people including transit riding seniors, people with disabilities, veterans, as well as, stakeholders who represent our riders, which allowed us to develop into a nonprofit organization.
