"So far, the journey toward a Bus Rapid Transit system linking Downtown Pittsburgh and Oakland has been a slow ride," reports Jon Schmitz.
"A Port Authority consultant proposed the idea more than five years ago. The authority hired a second consultant to begin analyzing route alternatives three years ago. Since then, only a tiny piece of the work needed to make the project a reality has been completed."
"The project would create a subway-like bus system in the Forbes and Fifth avenue corridor with enhanced stations and special vehicles."
