Welcome to BeST Transit

BeST Transit – headquartered in Athens, Pa. – serving Bradford, Sullivan and Tioga (Pa.) counties – provides quality public transportation for just about everyone. BeST Transit is managed by River Valley Transit in Williamsport and rebranded from Endless Mountains Transportation Authority (EMTA) in 2012.

BeST Transit is a rural multi-county public transit agency situated along the northern tier of Pennsylvania that services 2,750-square miles.

More than three decades ago, BeST Transit (EMTA) began as a volunteer-based transit clearinghouse in 1980 that matched volunteer drivers to transit-dependent users.

BeST Transit employs approximately 60 drivers based out of facilities in Athens and Mansfield. BeST Transit also has a call-center in Williamsport, Pa. where reservationists assist consumers with their respective trips.

BeST Transit buses and minivans travel approximately 1.9 million miles annually.
