FedEx, rabbittransit partner to extend bus line
Public transportation provider rabbittransit has expanded its bus service to include stops at a FedEx Ground facility in Fairview Township, a move designed to help employees of the package-delivery company get to work.
After fielding a request from FedEx, West Manchester Township-based rabbitransit began offering services at the end of July on the northern section of Susquehanna Trail, connecting York city to the suburban industrial park where FedEx is located, said Richard Farr, executive director of rabbittransit.
Companies reach out fairly regularly seeking transport for employees and rabbittransit has made an effort to assist, said Farr.
The service to FedEx extends a line that rabbittransit added this year to connect a warehouse in Conewago Township operated by supply chain company ES3 LLC.
The transit company also previously accommodated Starbucks and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Distribution Center by creating stops on an East Manchester Township route.
Services to FedEx run Monday through Friday, departing from the downtown rabbittransit transfer center at 213 W. King St. in York. A full schedule is available here.
In addition to an expanded route, FedEx Ground will host a job fair at rabbittransit’s transfer center on Aug. 7, from 2 to 5 p.m.
"We want to support our partners and our transfer center is where all of our routes connect. People pass through all day and now they’ll be exposed to new job opportunities," Farr said. "If one of our partners is successful, we are too."
