Port Authority to adjust 25 bus and T routes
Changes will be made to 25 Port Authority of Allegheny County bus and T routes starting Sunday as part of the agency's quarterly service adjustments.
Among the changes, Port Authority will establish regularly scheduled T service that runs on weekends between Allegheny Station on the North Shore and South Hills Junction.
The service, known as Subway Local, has been offered for the last several months to handle increased demand in Downtown, the North Shore and Station Square during weekend events. However, because the service wasn't built into the permanent schedule, Port Authority often had to get drivers to volunteer to work overtime to run trains.
All other trains run will continue to run to and from the South Hills via the Red and Blue lines.
Port Authority said it also plans to restore service to Belmar Gardens in Lincoln-Lemington, address overcrowding on a popular Oakland route and extend P1 East Busway-All Stops bus service to Swissvale. More information is available at www.portauthority.org.
