About

The Modern Transit Partnership (MTP) is a nonprofit organization which supports and promotes public transportation with the ultimate goal of bringing commuter rail to Central Pennsylvania. Launched in 1997 by the Capital Area Transit Board of Directors, this partnership is made up of business, community, government and individual members to develop a regional transportation plan that will meet tomorrow’s transportation and infrastructure needs. Working together, CAT and MTP are striving to give Central Pennsylvania the quality of life it cherishes by designing a true multi-modal transportation system – allowing passengers to make connections via several modes of mass transit.
