Buses at York Bus Transfer Center

Rabbit Transit, a division of York Adams Transportation Authority, primarily serves York County, Pennsylvania. It consists of two different types of routes - Rabbit Transit and Rabbit Express.  The Rabbit Transit service, with buses in a red and black scheme, provides local service in York County.  The Rabbit Express service, with buses in a black scheme, provides commuter service to Harrisburg, PA (via rt 83N), Towson, MD (via rt 83S), and the new service from Gettysburg to Harrisburg (via rt 15N).

#These were the first Rabbit Express buses, running on the 83N.  These buses have likely been retired, replaced by the MCI Motorcoaches.
*These Gillig BRTs were purchased used from Mountain Metropolitan Transit in Colorado Springs, CO.  They originally were for the FREX (Frontier Express) service, but were sold when the service had financial issues.  Rabbit purchased 9 of these vehicles, but it appears that a few may have been sold again to other agencies like New Castle Transit in New Castle, PA.
