What is Red Rose Access?

Red Rose Access Overview

Red Rose Access operates a shared ride (paratransit) transportation service called Red Rose Access for senior citizens and persons with disabilities in Lancaster County.  This door-to-door transportation service is available to those who are unable to use RRTA’s fixed-route bus system.  It is a shared-ride transportation service where trips are grouped together depending upon their travel time and locations.  These services are usually sponsored by a human service agency or the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Red Rose Transit Authority uses a contracted carrier to perform the service. The transportation is provided by Easton Coach Co.

Despite being a door-to-door service, Red Rose Access does not provide a “taxi” service and is not a non-stop ride for one person. Different riders are grouped depending on their travel times and location(s). Red Rose Access does not provide emergency transportation.
