Where do I catch my bus during the G-20?

Port Authority has published a G-20 Downtown Stop Guide that shows where riders should go to catch their buses. The guide is available on our G-20 Web site, on schedule racks and on buses.

You can download a copy directly by clicking here.

As most of you already know, much of Downtown Pittsburgh will not be accessible by car during the Summit. Port Authority bus and T service will provide direct service into Downtown Pittsburgh, following a regular weekday schedule.

Routes will serve the same stops and Park and Ride lots outside of Downtown but deviate as they enter the Golden Triangle. Routes will funnel into the Central Business District and hub around the Boulevard of the Allies corridor.

Port Authority will not operate special shuttles to parking areas outside of Downtown during G-20. We are, however, providing regular weekday service to roughly 60 Park and Ride facilities across the city and Allegheny County. Combined, they offer more than 15,000 spaces.

More helpful information is available at our G-20 Web page (www.portauthority.org/g20), including an interactive map, route-by-route descriptions and Park and Ride locations.

We anticipate delays and unanticipated changes during the two-day event. Things might change at any moment, so be sure to check the web site for updates, which will also be posted on our Twitter feed (@PGHtransit). You can also sign up for email alerts on our G-20 page.

Port Authority’s Downtown Service Center will be closed September 23-25, but the Customer Service line 412-442-2000 (TTY: 412-231-7007) will operate on its regular weekday schedule, 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Thanks for your patience and we promise to keep you updated on any developments regarding our services.
