I'm seeing extremely conflicting stats on the population of this city. Everywhere from 18,000 to 100's of thousands! Can anyone tell me the accurate population?

Also, apartment prices, any $800 or less in safe areas?

Pet friendly? (cats)

Is there good public transportation?

The population of Carlisle is around 18,000. Not sure where the 100's of thousands number came from! The population of the entire county (Cumberland) is ~220,000.

Can't help you with apartments, sorry.

The Capital Area Transit is the bus system that services Carlisle with routes into Harrisburg.

Hope this helps.

I am adding this post under the Carlisle heading as it was originally posted under Mechanicsburg.

I have been reading with interest about Carlisle and now Mechanicsburg. We are considering moving to the area. My husband will be retiring from the Army and we want to be near some sort of military facility in an area that offers cultural attractions (theatre, music, etc) without being in a large city. We will have highschool-aged children who have been used to attending diverse American and international overseas schools. And I wouldn't consider myself "conservative." Would this be an area for us? And how are the taxes?
