    The Lehigh Valley Transit Company (LVT) was headquartered in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and began operations in 1901 as an urban trolley and interurban rail transport company.

    It operated successfully into the 1930s, struggled financially during the Depression, and was saved from abandonment by a dramatic ridership increase due to the Second World War. In 1951, the LVT, once again financially struggling, ended its 36-mile interurban rail service from Allentown to Philadelphia. In 1952, it ended its Allentown area local trolley service.

    It operated local bus service in the Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, Pennsylvania, areas until going out of business in 1972.
