Public Awereness

Mission Statement

Hazleton Public Transit (HPT) will provide safe, effective, and reliable transportation for residents within our service area. HPT will continuously maintain the highest transportation standards for our customers.

Fair Policy Act 89

In accordance with PA Act 89 Chapter 15 §1507-6.1 which states Transit Authority Governing bodies must submit a "statement of policy outlining the basic principles for the adjustment of fare growth to meet the rate of inflation"; the creation and adoption of this policy brings Hazleton Public Transit {HPT) in compliance with this regulation.

The following process was designed to meet the requirements of the Act:

  1. The date of the most recent fixed route base fare increase will be determined.
  2. The percentage change from the previous fixed route base fare increase vs. the most current base fare increase will be measured.
  3. When the percentage change is determined, it will be compared to the National Consumer Price Index (CPI) as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) since the date of the last base fare increase.
  4. Should the CPI be greater than the percentage rate of the latest base fare increase, HPT Staff will consider a fixed route base fare increase for the coming Fiscal Year.
  5. Any base fare increase will be capped at $.25 to minimize the burden on riders as well as minimize the administrative burden on HPT staff.

HPT will comply with all Federal and State requirements for the notice and implementation procedures for instituting fare increases to the general public. HPT reserves the right to establish reduced fares for ridership categories including by not limited to ADA paratransit. HPT reserves the right to establish discounted fares for passengers that purchase multi-ride tickets. HPT reserves the right to negotiate reduced fare options with local funding partners including high schools, universities, and employers to provide further incentive for the utilization of public transportation services.
