New Facebook Page Offers Another Way to Find PennDOT News:  

Harrisburg – PennDOT’s newly-launched Facebook page gives Pennsylvanians even more ways to interact with the agency and find valuable transportation news and tips.

“As social media becomes more popular with our customers, they rightfully expect that they can find information in ways they’re used to receiving it,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “We’re pleased to now have another way that we can communicate with Pennsylvanians and transportation stakeholders.”

The new PennDOT Facebook page features:

  • Available resources for travel and construction information;
  • Information on highway safety including free resources, enforcement and traffic safety laws;
  • Information on driver’s license and motor vehicle operations, including convenient online services;
  • Descriptions of PennDOT’s many services available to the public; and
  • Featured PennDOT job opportunities.

“We encourage Pennsylvanians and others who travel in our state to visit our Facebook page and provide comments, ask questions or even share concerns,” Schoch said. “We take our mission seriously and that includes ensuring people can find out about the services we offer, as well as listening to their feedback.”

Schoch says Facebook is the next logical step in PennDOT’s migration to social media. Since the department launched its official Twitter account – PennDOTNews – two years ago, more than 6,500 followers have signed on.

In addition to the main PennDOTNews Twitter feed, the department also maintains eight regional Twitter accounts allowing followers to get updated traffic alerts and local PennDOT news.

PennDOT will not report traffic or road conditions on its Facebook page. Travelers should visit www.511PA.com or call 5-1-1 for current traffic conditions. The regional travel information accounts are accessible by clicking “Follow us on Twitter” on the 511 website.

To visit and “like” the PennDOT Facebook page, visit www.facebook.com/PennsylvaniaDepartmentofTransportation.

 

To interact with PennDOT on Twitter, go to www.twitter.com/PennDOTNews.

 

PennDOT’s main website, which offers comprehensive information about the agency, its regional offices and the many services offered, is found at www.dot.state.pa.us.

For information on PennDOT projects throughout the State, visit www.511pa.com.

PennDOT's 511PA system automatically feeds the Twitter accounts with information such as incidents, construction notices and weather alerts. District 11 also updates Twitter with local PennDOT news and travel information. The Pittsburgh-Southwestern region Twitter account, www.twitter.com/511PAPittsburgh, covers Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington and Westmoreland counties.
