Downtown Pittsburgh buses will be detoured for St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Buses will be detoured in Pittsburgh’s Downtown on Saturday for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the Port Authority of Allegheny County announced Wednesday.
The parade runs from 10 a.m. to approximately 1 p.m.
Buses that operate on Boulevard of the Allies (Routes 56, 57, 58, and 67) will begin detouring at 7 a.m., and buses that operate in the Strip District (Routes 54, 86, 87, 88, and 91) will begin detouring at 7:30 a.m., the Port Authority said.
All other bus routes will begin detouring about 9 a.m. Most routes will resume regular service soon after the streets are re-opened after the parade.
A free rail shuttle between Steel Plaza and Penn Station on the East Busway will run from about 8 a.m. until streets are re-opened.
Additional light rail service will be available throughout Saturday, and shuttle buses will continue to operate between Grandview Avenue and Station Square.
