Erie is located in the Northwest corner of Pennsylvania and offers the state’s only Great Lakes port. The city sits on the south shore of Lake Erie and serves as an exciting hub of business and culture, anchored by the revitalization of the lake’s waterfront. Erie has small town charm and a solid transportation infrastructure, making it an ideal place to both live and work.
Erie’s network of roads is organized in a simple grid pattern running along the Lake Erie coastline, so it is very easy to navigate via car. It is also served by two major interstates and a small airport that bears the same name. The Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority offers bus service throughout the city. The bus is complemented by the Bayliner Trolley for downtown travel, the LIFT for those needing mobility assistance and the Water Taxi for travel to and from nearby Presque Isle State Park.
