Red Line Detours Sept. 1-2, Holiday Service in Effect for Labor Day

Rail maintenance will detour Port Authority’s Red Line on Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2. Additionally, bus, T and inclines will use holiday schedules on Monday, September 3 for Labor Day, including special schedules for the T (PDF).

On Saturday from start of service until about 9 p.m., the outbound Red Line will detour via Overbrook (along the Blue Line’s routing) from South Hills Junction to Willow/Overbrook Junction. Bus shuttles will provide outbound-only service to stops from Station Square to Potomac and a local light rail shuttle will operate outbound from Potomac to Overbrook Junction. Inbound Red Line service will be regular route.

Then beginning at about 9 p.m. Saturday, the Red Line will be detoured in both directions until the end of service on Sunday, with detoured service, bus shuttles and local rail shuttles operating as outlined above, except serving both inbound and outbound stops. Regular routing is expected to resume by start of service on Labor Day.
