A public meeting was held Wednesday at Pitt's Alumni Hall in Oakland about Port Authority of Allegheny County's proposed bus rapid transit system linking Oakland and Downtown.

Port Authority of Allegheny County will hold more public meetings about a planned bus rapid transit system to connect Oakland and Downtown, though federal funding for the $233 million project might be in jeopardy.

Now that a route has been chosen, the meetings will focus on gathering input about where passenger stations should be placed and street design, according to a Port Authority webpage.

Public meeting schedule:

Oakland: 6:30 to 8 p.m. June 19 at Oakland Career Center, 294 Semple St.

8:30 to 10 a.m. June 28 at Kresge Center, 5th floor, University Commons, Carlow University, 3333 Fifth Ave.

Uptown: 6:30 to 8 p.m. June 20 at NeighborWorks WPA, 710 Fifth Ave., Suite 1000

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
