Red Line Detour May 17-18

Red Line T service will detour in both directions this weekend so that Port Authority of Allegheny County can conduct rail maintenance in Dormont.

The detour will be in effect all day Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18, with regular routing to resume with Monday morning’s commute.

Red Line service will detour via the Overbrook line (along the Blue Line’s routing) between Overbrook Junction/Willow and South Hills Junction. Local rail shuttles will operate between Overbrook Junction and Dormont Junction, bus shuttles between Dormont Junction and Potomac Station and local rail shuttles will operate between Potomac and South Hills Junction.

Riders should allow for extra time when traveling on detoured service.

In some cases, riders may wish to travel in the opposite direction then transfer to service in their intended direction in order to minimize transfers. For example, a rider heading into Downtown from Arlington Stop may wish to ride outbound on the rail shuttle, then transfer once at Overbrook Junction/Willow to inbound Blue Line or detoured Red Line.

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