GENERAL PUBLIC RIDERS INFO

RTP provides county-wide “General Public” transportation to residents of Cumberland County. General Public transportation is provided on a “space-available” basis. Income verification is not required to qualify for General Public service. As long as the trip is taking place within Cumberland County, RTP will do its best to help you get where you need to go. Because RTP is a shared-ride service, it does require flexibility on the part of riders.

Who Can Ride? Anyone, as long as the trip takes place within Cumberland County, there is space available, and we already have a vehicle scheduled in your area.

Where Can You Go? Shopping, hospital visits, the library, or any other purpose as long as the trip takes place within Cumberland County, and we have a vehicle already scheduled in your area.
