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.

Detours to local auto traffic will be in place around-the-clock and signs will be posted to guide traffic. Local bus routes will also be detoured during this project.
Bus detour notices will be posted at www.portauthority.org under "Detours" once available.
Work will occur on one side of the street at a time and in sections, with detours shifting as the area of impact changes. The work that starts Monday will affect the section of Warrington between Estella and Beltzhoover avenues. Then in approximately mid-June, work will shift to the area between Beltzhoover and Arlington avenues.
Rehab work on Warrington Avenue began in the fall when Port Authority contractors improved the stretch of road between Haberman and Estella avenues. Warrington Avenue is partially owned by Port Authority as it contains embedded light rail tracks formerly used by the defunct Allentown line.
For more information, visit www.portauthority.org or contact Customer Service at 412-442-2000 (TTY 412-231-7007).

Port Authority passes will now be sold on ConnectCard at nearly 50 Giant Eagle locations throughout Allegheny County and surrounding areas. Riders who already have ConnectCards may also visit these locations to reload their cards.
Weekly passes for the week of March 10-16 go on sale tomorrow; April’s monthly passes go on sale on March 16.
Previously, new ConnectCards could only be obtained at Port Authority’s Downtown Service Center and at two pilot Giant Eagle locations in Shadyside and on the South Side, and loading of new passes was limited to those locations and ConnectCard machines at selected busway and T stations.
At this time new ConnectCards are only being distributed for weekly or monthly pass users. Cash riders and those using trip tickets will be transitioned to stored cash value ConnectCards at a later date.
For more information, including a list and map of locations, visit www.connectcard.org or contact Port Authority Customer Service at 412-442-2000 (TTY 412-231-7007).

Due to the extent of the detour, numerous stops along Center Avenue in West View will be unable to be served. The detoured 13 Bellevue will instead use Bellevue Road to cross over the Parkway.

View complete detour information, including stop changes.
