In Pittsburgh, you either love or hate public transit. Residents of Oakland, where bus speed averages 9 miles per hour, are probably less than thrilled with service.
In an effort to improve offerings, the Pittsburgh Port Authority has proposed plans to create a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system that offers more reliable and frequent service between neighborhoods like Uptown and Oakland to downtown Pittsburgh. If approved, the BRT system is expected to serve 37,000 plus riders on day 1 in 2021.
The Port Authority has been holding public meetings to seek community input. Make sure your voice is heard here.
