Veterans Day Detours & Service Information

Veterans Day parades in Downtown Pittsburgh and McKeesport will detour bus service on Friday, Nov. 11, but Port Authority service will follow weekday schedules. 

The Federation of War Veterans' Societies will hold its 92nd annual Veterans Day parade in Downtown Pittsburgh. Nearly 50 Port Authority bus routes will be detoured by the parade in Downtown and the Strip District.
