Free Transit Program for Senior Citizens

The free transit program allows senior citizens to ride free on a local fixed-route service whenever the local public transit system is operating. To be eligible you must be 65 years of age or older and you will need a senior citizen transit identification card, which is available free of charge from participating local transit operators.

Visit PennDOT's Senior Transit Programs page for more information or locate your local transit operator.

Shared Ride Program

The shared-ride program allows senior citizens (65 years of age and older) to use shared-ride, demand-responsive (normally curb-to-curb) services and pay only a small portion of the regular shared-ride fare.
