In Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh to Oakland BRT Plans Moving Slowly

In the hopes of finalizing a plan to connect Pittsburgh and Oakland with a bus rapid transit route, the Port Authority of Allegheny County has approved $3 million out of the needed $4 million for a preliminary engineering and environmental review.

"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."
