A Cranberry Area Transit Study was undertaken in 2004 to evaluate the needs and identify options for public transportation for Cranberry Township, Butler County and the surrounding area. The study area is located in the southwest corner of Butler County, with a small portion located in northwest Allegheny County, and is bordered on the west by Beaver County. The study area includes Cranberry Township and the neighboring municipalities of Harmony, Zelienople, Mars, Evans City, Seven Fields Borough, Callery Borough, Valencia Borough, and Jackson, Adams, Forward, and Middlesex Townships (Butler County), and Marshall and Pine Townships (Allegheny County).
Rapid residential and employment growth has been occurring for the last decade in the Cranberry area. Industrial parks, the Route 19 retail corridor, remote office parks and numerous residential developments rely heavily on the automobile for transportation. There are limited pedestrian amenities, a lack of local transit facilities and existing park-n-ride lots are at capacity. This combined with lower population density in the area surrounding Cranberry Township make transit service planning a challenge.
This study was completed in December 2004 and was led by Cranberry Township, Butler County, Butler Township City Joint Municipal Transit Agency (The Bus), PennDOT and the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC). Study partners included Federal Transit Administration, Port Authority of Allegheny County, Beaver County Transit Authority, New Castle Area Transit Authority, Butler Area Rural Transportation, Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board, and, study area municipalities, businesses and private citizens.
