Buses Detour During Saturday's St. Patrick's Day Parade

Approximately 45 Port Authority bus routes serving Downtown and the Strip District will see temporary stop changes, and detoured or truncated routing during the St. Patrick's Day Parade scheduled for Saturday, March 16.

Bus routes serving the Strip District will be detoured as early as 7:30 a.m., with other detours starting around 9 a.m. Regular stops and routing are expected to be restored around 2:30 p.m.

During the parade, South Side/South Hills bus routes will terminate at Station Square, where riders continuing into Downtown can transfer to the T for free. Second Avenue bus service will terminate at First Avenue T Station and Oakland/Hill District/Penn Hills routes will terminate near Steel Plaza T Station. All T rides within Downtown are free.

Additionally, the 28X Airport Flyer will not serve Downtown during the parade. Riders may take the T to Station Square to catch the detoured 28X. P1 East Busway-All Stops riders must pick up their route at Penn Station during the parade.
