St. Patrick's Day Parade to Detour Bus Routes

Many Port Authority bus routes serving Downtown and the Strip District will see temporary stop changes, and detoured or shortened routing during the St. Patrick's Day Parade scheduled for this Saturday, March 12.

Many bus routes passing through the Strip District will be detoured as early as 8 a.m., with other detours starting around 9 a.m. Throughout Downtown and the Strip District, certain stops will not be served for the duration of the parade; temporary stops will be served in their place. Regular stops and routes are expected to resume around 2:30 p.m.

Additionally, some West End and South Hills bus routes will terminate at Station Square, where riders continuing into Downtown can transfer to the T for free; the 28X Airport Flyer and outbound G2 West Busway-Oakland also will serve Station Square, temporarily bypassing Downtown.

The Downtown busway entrance will be closed during the parade, and some routes coming from the East End will terminate at Penn Station during this time; additionally some routes that normally serve Penn Station will not do so during the parade.
