Take Transit to the Three Rivers Arts Festival

It's easy to visit the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival using public transportation. Port Authority of Allegheny County's light rail and bus service connects Downtown Pittsburgh to communities throughout the region.

Most Arts Festival activities are located just steps from Port Authority's Gateway Station light rail station and a short walk from numerous Downtown bus routes.

For help in planning a transit trip, visit, use Google Maps or contact Port Authority Customer Service at 412-442-2000 (TTY 412-231-7007).

Occasional riders and visitors are encouraged to use Port Authority's fare card system, ConnectCard, for the quickest, most secure and most convenient way to pay their transit fare.

ConnectCards with stored cash value are available for purchase at Port Authority's Downtown Service Center, most area Giant Eagle locations and other selected retailers. A one-way trip to Downtown is $2.50 from city neighborhoods and adjacent suburbs, or $3.75 from outer suburbs.

Once you have a card, it never expires and can be reloaded at any ConnectCard machine in addition to retail locations.

Calendar week passes and 10-trip blocks are available on ConnecTix, limited-use paper cards that are sold from ConnectCard machines.

For more details, view a map and list of all ConnectCard and ConnecTix locations.

Special fares are also available for seniors, riders with disabilities and children. Learn more.
