The Luzerne County Transportation Authority currently provides the Wilkes-Barre urbanized area with scheduled mass transportation bus service. A soon to be new bus fleet operates on routes serving 31 municipalities within the urbanized area, so that approximately 88% of the population resides within one-quarter of a mile of a bus route. Route frequency of the various routes averages out to about every forty-five minutes, with some routes operating every half-hour. Our service hours are between 5:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday thru Friday and between 9:00 am and 5:30 pm on Saturdays. The Luzerne County Transportation Authority also assists persons with disabilities in fulfilling their transportation needs and to meet requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. This special Transportation Efforts Program (S.T.E.P) is available in the General Service Area of the Luzerne County Transportation Authority. This program permits approved disabled persons to ride on vans operated by the Luzerne/Wyoming Counties Transportation Department.
