Good News for Port Authority Bus Service

When we hear news of Port Authority of Allegheny County service changes, it usually means we’ll have to brace ourselves for cuts in service. But with transportation funding legislation approved by the legislature and Governor Tom Corbett last fall, the authority plans to add more frequent service to some of the busiest routes. 

The changes take effect August 31st, for more than 20 bus lines. Pittsburgh Port Authority Communications Officer Jim Ritchie explains what went into the route expansions.
