Town & Country Transit (TACT) provides fixed route bus ride service to residents in the greater Kittanning and Ford City areas and shared ride service to all Armstrong County residents. We operate transportation services Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. until 10:40 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. TACT does not operate service on Sundays and holidays.
Eight municipalities are members of TACT including Applewold, East Franklin, Ford City, Ford Cliff, Kittanning, Manor, Manorville and West Kittanning. These member municipalities govern TACT by serving on our Board of Directors and support us financially by providing funding to our agency.
Armstrong County is also TACT's partner. The County provides funding annually to our agency which helps us to get additional money from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, TACT's primary funding source.
PENNDOT funds TACT through grants and Pennsylvania Lottery funds. These funds allow TACT to provide fixed route bus and shared ride service to all of the citizens in our community.
TACT operates three bus routes from the transit center on McKean Avenue to various locations throughout the Kittanning and Ford City areas. TACT's bus routes are:
Green Line Ford City/Valley View/Manor
Serving Ford City and Manorville
Blue Line Malls/ACMH
Serving Applewold, West Kittanning, Hilltop Plaza, Franklin Village and Armstrong County Memorial Hospital
Yellow Line Lemon Way

Schedules and service information for each route can be found by clicking the Route Tabs on the left side of this page. You can also pick up a public schedule at TACT's office, the transit center or call our office for one of the 15 other places throughout the area timetables are available.
TACT also provides a service called Shared Ride to all of the citizens in Armstrong County. Shared Ride is advance reservation, door-to-door service for senior citizens 65 years and older, and Persons with Disabilities (PwD) ages 18 - 64, and the general public. To ride this service you must reserve your trip two days in advance by calling TACT at 724-548-8696 or 1-800-245-8588.
Shared Ride customers that need to reserve a trip must call TACT's office by 11:00 am the business day prior to your appointment. Reservationists are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. at 724-548-8696 or 1-800-245-8588. To schedule a trip on Monday customers must call TACT's office no later than Friday by 11:00 am of the previous week.
Shared Ride fares are based on the distance that you ride. Some riders, like senior citizens and Persons with Disabilities (PwD), are eligible for programs that can help pay for a significant portion of the fares. For more information on TACT's Shared Ride programs, please call us at 724-548-8696 or 1-800-245-8588.
