Bus and T Detours for Transit Tunnel Closure This Weekend

The Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel will be closed for rail maintenance all day Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1. During the closure, light rail service and several bus routes will be detoured.

Red and Blue line service will detour in both directions via Allentown, bypassing Station Square. Special rail shuttle service will operate between Station Square, Downtown Pittsburgh and the North Shore. Riders must transfer from the Red or Blue line to the rail shuttle for Station Square service. Delays of around 10 minutes should be expected due to the detour.

Seven Port Authority bus routes will be detoured inbound via Arlington and Warrington avenues and outbound via the Wabash Tunnel, with minor temporary stop changes resulting from the detour.

All riders using detoured service should allow for extra travel time.
