Bus Detours for Light Up Night

Many Port Authority of Allegheny County bus routes will operate on special detours Friday and Saturday during the annual Light Up Night festivities in Downtown Pittsburgh.

Most Light Up Night detours will go into effect at approximately 6 p.m. Friday, with detours on a few routes beginning earlier. Approximately 50 bus routes will be detoured Friday, with detours lasting through the end of the night. Additionally, about 40 routes will be detoured Saturday between 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. for a parade.
