The Pittsburgh Port Authority announced they are reducing bus and light rail service by approximately 25 percent beginning Wednesday. None of the service destinations our routes will change; they are merely running less often due to the decrease in ridership and other operational challenges.
"The reduction balances the Authority’s need to protect frontline employees while maintaining service for essential trips taken by hospital staff, government officials and emergency responders. It takes into account public guidance from state and local leaders, along with emergency orders to cancel events, close schools and offices, and limit social gatherings across the nation. "
“Our region is speaking with one voice: If you don’t need to go out, please stay home,” said Port Authority CEO Katharine Kelleman.
