May 11 Work Near Transit Tunnel to Impact Bus and T

The Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel will be closed to buses for part of the day Sunday, May 11 so that Port Authority may conduct rail maintenance.

The closure will be in effect from the morning’s start of service until about 1 p.m.

This work has been rescheduled from May 10.

During the closure, affected bus routes will be detoured inbound via Allentown and outbound via the Wabash Tunnel. Riders should allow for extra travel time due to the detour.

T service will still use the tunnel but will single-track in the affected area during this time, with all inbound service using the outbound platforms at South Hills Junction and Station Square. Outbound T service will remain regular route during this time. Delays of around five to eight minutes may occur due to single-tracking.

For more information, please view our Detour Notice or call Customer Service at 412-442-2000 (TTY 412-231-7007).
