Schedule & Stop Changes Take Effect June 16

More than 70 Port Authority bus routes will see changes effective Sunday, June 16 due to both regular quarterly schedule adjustments and a new effort to consolidate bus stops.

Schedules for nearly 45 bus routes will be adjusted starting that day. Port Authority regularly adjusts schedules four times a year.

Included in the June schedule adjustments are routing and schedule tweaks to the bus routes affected by the ongoing weight restriction on Swissvale’s Kenmawr Bridge, as well as changes to better serve Bedford Avenue in the Hill District.

Along with regular quarterly routing and scheduling adjustments, Port Authority will also begin the first of several phases of bus stop consolidations next month. Approximately 430 stops will be eliminated effective June 16. The stops chosen for elimination are ones that see little to no use.

Details on the service changes and links to new schedules are now posted on our Service Changes page.

Paper schedules will be available prior to the changes.
