BARTA bus passengers might be able to catch a ride to Lebanon by the end of summer.

The two transit agencies already were developing plans for a Reading-Lebanon route, and the route proposed Monday would be a temporary measure to keep service between the cities alive while details of the permanent route are being worked out.

  1. I just got a job in Robesonia, I live in Lebanon and was going to rely on the Beiber bus to get me there. I didn’t know the service is stopping. I really hope this route from Lebanon to Reading works out. I may not be able to take the job if it doesn’t. Thanks for getting this going. How will I know when it is running? Thanks, Beth
