Lancaster commuters: Don’t forget to take the bus survey

Lancaster commuters: Don’t forget to take the bus survey that could result in a better transit connection.

The deadline is Saturday, Aug. 30.

Rabbittransit currently provides service from York to Lancaster eight times a day, said Richard Farr, executive director of Rabbittansit. It is on Route 12, and riders can connect to Red Rose Transit Authority’s Route 17 at a bus stop in Columbia.

“We’ve had some requests for enhanced service for Lancaster,” Farr said in an email.

More than 1,400 people live near Route 30 in York and cross the Susquehanna River to work in Lancaster, Farr said. More than 900 people cross the river every day coming in the opposite direction.

In 2013, Red Rose’s Route 17 and Rabbittransit’s Route 12 provided more than 275,000 trips in York, Hallam, Wrightsville, Columbia, Marietta and Lancaster, Farr wrote.

“We are trying to gauge what level of service people would be seeking and what level could be implemented to be sustainable,” he said.

So don’t forget to take the survey.
