Monroe County Transit Authority (MCTA) – Shared Ride

Shared Ride is a program designed to help any individual in Monroe County seeking access to otherwise unavailable transportation. Individuals who live more than 1/4 mile from a fixed route should call Shared Ride for further information on service days and fares. Shared Ride programs can be used for trips to doctors appointments, grocery store, and any other day-to-day errands. Shared Ride is only available by reservation. You must call the Shared Ride dispatch by 12 Noon the day before your trip to schedule a ride. MCTA now offers a new North and South Loop service so all riders can go beyond Monroe County. The North Loop service operates North of Interstate 80 on Tuesday and Thursday to the Scranton & Wilkes-Barre area. The South Loop service operates South of Interstate 80 on Monday and Wednesday to the Allentown, Bethlehem, and Wind Gap area. For Seniors Only, the PA State Lottery Program pays for 85% of the shared ride fare. In Monroe County, the Area Agency on Aging works with Seniors to help pay some of the remaining 15% cost. The amount of co-pay you will be required to pay can vary based on the current year budget allocations in our community, but never more than 15% of the total fare. Call MCTA for more information on fare rates. (Certain trips such as Kidney Dialysis may be available Monday through Friday). Shared Rides are not available on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
