Port Authority Celebrates 50 Years This Year

March 1, 2014 marks Port Authority of Allegheny County’s 50th anniversary.

Port Authority was created in 1959 when the Pennsylvania Legislature authorized the consolidation of 33 private transit carriers. By combining fare structures and centralizing operations, Port Authority established the first unified transit system in Allegheny County, officially coming into existence on March 1, 1964.

Be sure to keep an eye out in the months ahead as we commemorate 50 years of connecting people to life.
