Whether it’s to work, to school, to the casino, to the mall or to the heart of downtown Erie, the “e” takes you there. Our region – from Erie to Edinboro – has so many exciting and diverse destinations for recreation, shopping and fun, and you can get there on the e!

The “e” is also complemented by the Bayliner Trolley for downtown travel, the LIFT for those needing mobility assistance and the Water Taxi for travel to and from Presque Isle State Park.

Are you ready to ride?
