Meetings This Week: South Pittsburgh's Transit Revitalization Investment District Study

This week, the City of Pittsburgh will begin its South Metro Area Revitalization through Transit (SMART) Transit Revitalization Investment District (TRID) planning study.

Pittsburgh's Department of City Planning, the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the office of Rep. Chelsa Wagner are among the lead organizations in this initiative.

Two public meetings on the subject will be held this week:
  • Tuesday, October 26, from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Warrington Recreation Center in Allentown (accessible via the 44, 48 or 54C bus routes - note that Brown Line also serves the area, with that service ending shortly after 6 pm)
  • Wednesday, October 27, from 6pm to 8 pm at St. Catherine’s McCann Hall in Beechview (on the T's Red Line).

Members of the community are encouraged to attend the meetings to share their views on development near transit stations and infrastructure in South Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

  1. Why talk about giving us discounts at places downtown for riding -- how about giving us consistent public transport -- you know, what we pay your exhorbitant fees to do!
