The first round of Transit Development Plan route changes will go into effect on Sunday, April 4. Most of you have probably already checked to see if your routes are changing (if you haven’t yet, click here) and have grabbed copies of the new schedules.
Here are a few additional things to keep in mind next week:
Downtown Routing & Detours
Routes that are changing will keep their Downtown Pittsburgh routing and any existing detours will carry over.
For example, if you normally ride the 100 West Busway-Oakland, you’ll be using the same Downtown stops you currently use to ride the new G2 West Busway-Oakland. The detour affecting service on Seventh Avenue between Smithfield and William Penn Place, for example, will still be in effect and will carry over to the new route.
Detours outside of Downtown will also carry over where applicable, such as the Saxonburg Boulevard detour, which will carry over from D Middle Road Flyer to the new P11 Middle Road Flyer.
Streamlined Downtown circulation is part of the Transit Development Plan, but won’t be put into effect for some time, likely after all routes see changes.
Please keep in mind that the new hand schedules show each route's permanent stops. Detours override these stops where applicable.
Customer Service & Twitter
Customer Service will hold its regular hours on Sunday, April 4 (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) and Monday, April 5 (6 a.m. to 7 p.m.).
Because we anticipate greater than normal call volume on these days, we recommend that riders call ahead of time with their questions if possible.
Port Authority’s Twitter feed will hold its regular weekday-only hours, monitoring the feed Monday, April 5 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
