History of the Harrisonburg Department of Public Transportation (HDPT)

Noll Drive HDPT FacilityFirst HDPT Facility in the 1970's on Noll Drive

In 1980, HDPT had nine taxi cabs, three mini buses, and three school buses in its fleet.

Since that time, the population in Harrisonburg has increased along with the needs of the city's transportation. HDPT now has 43 school buses, 30 transit buses, and eight paratransit buses in the fleet to operate, along with more city-owned vehicles that need regular maintenance.

HDPT continues to grow to better meet the needs of our schoolchildren, residents, and all city employees.
