New Park & Ride in Lincoln Place

Port Authority has established a new Park and Ride lot located at the former Muldowney bus loop in Lincoln Place. The lot is located a short walk from 56 Lincoln Place bus stops on Mifflin Road and 53L Homestead Park Limited stops on Interboro Avenue.

The lot, which is Port Authority property, will accommodate 10-15 cars, with striping for spaces to be added at a later date. The lot is located on Muldowney Avenue near Beggs Street.

The existing shelter at the lot will not be served by buses. For inbound 56 service, riders should walk to Mifflin Road past Interboro Avenue (in front of the Sunoco gas station). For inbound 53L, riders should walk to Interboro Avenue past Leaside Drive (opposite the Sunoco station). Riders using these stops will pay a one-zone fare to ride Downtown.

Port Authority continues to actively pursue new Park and Ride opportunities in the area following the discontinuation of rider parking at the Elks Lodge and Allegheny County Airport lots.
