LEHIGH VALLEY, PA – The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber is proud to partner with LANta to celebrate the grand opening of their new Para Transit Facility in Allentown. The Ribbon Cutting will take place on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at 1:30 pm.

The new 67,000 square-foot facility features administrative offices, dispatch, a maintenance bay, a wash bay, and vehicle staging. All of LANTA’s para transit operations run at the new location. The site was chosen for its easy access to major roadways and its proximity to LANTA’s existing headquarters. The new location will allow LANTA to efficiently and conveniently serve the public in Lehigh and Northampton Counties.

LANTA’s LANtaVan division operates a fully coordinated door-to-door para transit system covering Lehigh and Northampton Counties. LANtaVan provides mobility services to seniors, persons with disabilities, and other populations through various human service transportation funding programs. The LANtaVan system uses a fleet of 85 para transit vans to operate this service on a daily basis, and typically provides over 400,000 passenger trips annually.
