Harrisburg has an extensive public bus system that covers most of the city and is easy to use.  The Capital Area Transit Company runs the bus system and has a website that provides passengers with route information.  The base fare for Harrisburg's city buses is $1.50 one way.  Students with identification and seniors are eligible for discounts.  Monthly passes are also available and range from $40 to $60 depending on the zone for which they are purchased.  Children under the age of 5 can ride the buses for free.  Tickets and passes are available at the CAT's main office on Cameron Street in Harrisburg as well as online via their website's ticket page.

The Capital Area Transit Company also offers a Park and Ride program with their buses.  Passengers can drive to designated parking areas where they will be picked up by the bus and taken to their destination, allowing them to be car-free.  Most of the park and ride lots are free with the exception of the City Island lot.  During peak commuter times the park and ride buses run on an express schedule.
