The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA), created in the midst of a transportation crisis in March of 1972 by Lehigh and Northampton counties, is charged with operating a "public transportation system . ..for public use in the metropolitan area consisting of the Counties of Lehigh and Northampton." The Authority assumed responsibility for the transit system formerly owned and operated by Lehigh Valley Transit Company, a private, for-profit entity which, in 1970, petitioned the PUC to permit the cessation of services. A bi-county, municipal authority, LANTA supplements passenger fares and other revenues with county, state and federal funding to support operating and capital expenses.

LANtaVan is transportation for people who need specialized service.  It is a door-to-door, shared ride service, that is, no one passenger has exclusive use of the vehicle.
