There will be more trips available on four bus routes in Oakland as part of service updates that begin on March 17, the Port Authority of Allegheny County said.

The trips will be added to the 71B-Highland Park, 71D-Hamilton, 75-Ellsworth, and 83-Bedford Hill to reduce overcrowding and rider pass-ups, according to a news release.

The additional trips are part of adjustments the authority makes each quarter. They also will ensure that Hazelwood Green will be served by the 57-Hazelwood as soon as the private streets are dedicated to the city, the authority said. Buses will continue to use Irvine Street until that time.

Schedules for more than two-dozen bus routes will be updated as part of the adjustments. The full list of changes can be found here.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
