HARRISBURG – Pennsylvanians are being urged by PennDOT and the Department of Human Services to use Find My Ride to learn about public transit options and apply for transportation assistance programs. They underscored transit’s critical role in getting people to work and medical appointments while connecting them to their communities. PennDOT’s Jennie Louwerse says public transportation services are available in every county in PA, including shared ride service in all 67 counties and fixed route bus service in 49 counties. Citizens are encouraged to use FMR Apply, an online tool which streamlines the application process for the five largest transportation assistance programs in the state, including the Senior Shared Ride program, the Medical Assistance Transportation Program, ADA complementary paratransit, the Persons with Disabilities program, and the Free Transit Program. FMR Apply also allows third-parties, such as a family member or healthcare provider, to apply for services on behalf of a rider.
