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 allow all Central Pennsylvania residents to connect to their most basic needs. Our partnership is comprised of over 40 people – including senior transit riders, people with disabilities, veterans, and stakeholders who represent our riders – which has allowed us to develop into a nonprofit organization.
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 we can address needs identified by the partnership
- Works with the partnership to identify solutions to rider needs/barriers and seeks funding sources to support those efforts
- Provides a mechanism to serve populations that fall outside of traditional transportation funding streams
Priority Transportation: Veterans, Access to Food, Medical
