Transit Development Plan Survey

Hazleton Public Transit (HPT), with support from PennDOT, is currently developing a Transit Development Plan (TDP). The HPT TDP presents a strategic public transit vision that will guide transit priorities and improvements for the next 5 years.

The TDP will:

  • evaluate HPT’s current route system, the area it serves, its assets, and the community’s needs
  • identify where there are opportunities for growth and enhancement
  • provide recommendations for improvement and implementation

The public engagement component of the plan provides a platform for public input that will help HPT better serve the community. HPT wants to hear from riders and community members who don’t currently ride transit. Please fill out the online survey, which will be available through October 6, 2020.

HPT believes public feedback is instrumental for the improvement of public transit in the greater Hazleton area. Please attend our two upcoming public meetings to learn more about the TDP, it’s recommendations, and provide your thoughts and suggestions.

  1. Online Public Meeting #1 is scheduled for September 22nd, 2020. Please register here for the event.
  2. Online Public Meeting #2 is scheduled for November 10nd, 2020. Please register here for the event.

Coronavirus Information

For the most up-to-date information, please visit www.cdc.gov.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), HPT requests that riders limit non-essential bus travel until further notice.

HPT is working with Federal, State and Local officials to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

When on board, passengers are asked to leave extra space between themselves and others. This form of social distancing can help protect you and others from the spread of the virus.

Please stay behind the yellow line and limit your conversation and interaction with the driver.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises anyone with fever, cough or shortness of breath not to go out in public.

HPT is maintaining regular contact with Federal, State and Local officials, and have been following CDC prevention guidelines.

We are on a daily basis disinfecting all hand rails and high-touch surfaces in all vehicles and facilities, which is supplemental to our normal cleaning.

HPT will continue to closely monitor the situation and make updates as necessary.

In order for Hazleton Public Transit to continue to provide life-sustaining service, we are calling on our customers for assistance. We need to create social distancing for our operators. Please keep conversation with them to a minimum and move directly to your seat.

We ask that you please refrain from sitting in the front area of the bus. If you are an ADA eligible or senior passenger and are not able to access seating in another part of the bus, please notify the driver for assistance. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Lost and Found Suspended

Effective immediately, for the safety of our employees and passengers, HPT will be suspending our current lost and found policy indefinitely. Any items left behind on buses or vans will be discarded immediately. Please refer to our coronavirus update for current notices.

Church Street Station

Church Street Station is the City of Hazleton's intermodal center. The transportation center is located at 126 Mine Street just south of center city’s Broad Street. Church Street Station is providing residents of Greater Hazleton with a central hub for local, regional and long-distance bus transportation.

Church Street Station now serves as the transit and operations center for Hazleton Public Transit. HPT passengers can board HPT buses, purchase bus passes, and obtain customer support services at the new facility. Church Street Station has been designed to accommodate future phases, which could add additional amenities including parking decks, retail space and offices.

Common Sense Tips to Fight Flu

March 5, 2020

HPT has been closely monitoring news reports about the human coronavirus and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website for information and updates.  We are also communicating with peer transit agencies to share information about preventive measures and best practices for operational procedures.

Right now, the best thing everyone can do is to familiarize themselves on best ways to fight all types of respiratory illnesses, the flu, and colds – starting with some common sense hygiene practices:

  • Wash your hands often, for 20 seconds, using soap and water
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed or unsanitized hands
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or handkerchief when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after using
  • It is important to take proper precautions for yourself and others when you feel sick
  • The CDC (cdc.gov) does not recommend wearing a face mask. They are NOT effective in preventing the general public from catching coronavirus.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

We will continue to update you on our preventative measure to fight the flu this season and if there are any local updates about the coronavirus.
