History

Beginning July 1, 2011, Liberty Place Inc. became the lead agency for public transit service in the Whitehall area at the request of the Whitehall Senior Transportation which had been running the operation to that point. Whitehall Public Transportation (WPT) operates as a program under Liberty Place, Inc., a 501c3 corporation.

Whitehall Public Transportation remains the only provider of transit for the general public of the greater Whitehall area. The primary focus of this program is to provide transportation services first to those with disabilities or are elderly and then the general public.

Liberty Place alone serves over 20 individuals with disabilities and relies on transit to assist with getting people to needed services. WPT focuses first on medical and therapy appointments with trips for other basic life necessities such as nutrition, shopping, recreation/social, education and employment including Vocational Rehabilitation.
