Staffing shortage forces Rabbit Transit, CAT to reduce service
A recent shortage in driver applicants and qualified candidates is forcing Rabbit Transit and Capital Area Transit to reduce operations.
Rabbit Transit will reduce service starting Sunday, Feb. 6, in York and Adams counties. Capital Area Transit will do the same the next day in Cumberland and Dauphin counties.
“Like many businesses, we are impacted by employee shortages in the marketplace and COVID complications," said Executive Director Richard Farr.
A combination of these two factors has trickled through the service area and is taking a toll on the agency's workforce, riders and more, Farr said.
However, services will continue for essential transportation for those who need to go to work, seek medical care or access food, a news release said.
