Schedule Bulletin

March 1, 2022

To all Fullington Employees and Central Pennsylvania Communities:

The last two years have been quite challenging for all of us including Fullington Trailways. 

In late 2021, we learned via a PennDOT Request for Proposal (RFP) that our daily departures (line-runs) were being consolidated.  Their decision to reduce daily routes was based on budget constraints and also on an audit conducted by the Federal Transit Administration.

On the bright side, Fullington Trailways was the successful bidder of the majority of the routes PennDOT proposed.  The unfortunate news is the RFP outline reduced the service levels throughout the state.  In certain cases, the reduction was by 50%, and in other cases community’s service was completely discontinued.    

Below you will find the schedule bulletin Fullington Trailways will communicate to all agents and communities who will be affected by this modification of service.

Fullington Trailways challenged the state’s decisions the entire way through this process, but it became clear due to their budgetary constraints that Fullington Trailways would not be able to retain certain existing daily routes going forward.  Greyhound was the other recipient and was awarded the remaining routes with a reduction of service to their system as well. 

We regret that we will be unable to serve to some rural communities we have so enjoyed providing safe and reliable transportation to for so many years.  No employees should be adversely affected by this reduction in services. 

The modified and reduced bus service will be effective as of April 1, 2022. 

Regards,

 

Jonathan Berzas

President and Chief Executive Officer
