Port Authority Experiences Delays Due To Snow

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The latest snow storm to move through western Pennsylvania caused some Port Authority service delays Tuesday morning.

Bus and T service experienced some delays and conditions of the side streets played a major role.

Some of the side streets in Pittsburgh haven’t been treated. As a result, buses are unable to travel on them.

At one point Tuesday morning, 25 bus lines were out of service.

Lines that weren’t affected were:

  • 61 A, B, C, D
  • 71 A, C, D
  • 13 A
  • 8
  • 59

East and west busway was also in service.

The Mon Incline is up and running and T light rail is operating on a normal schedule.

Yesterday, the Port Authority suspended much of its service around 10 p.m. due to the conditions.

As of 7 a.m. Tuesday, most of the Port Authority bus routes had resumed normal service.

Riders are being advised to check the status of their bus route by calling the Port Authority Customer Service line at (412)-442-2000 or by visiting their website.

    you cant both the website and the phone lines are down

  • Daniel

    Yes the website has been down for about 3 hours now. How are people supposed to get information?

  • Juane

    So are the darn Busses running. Someone said they waited for an hour for a bus that was not mentioned above and it never came.

  • Robyn

    Follow them on twitter.

    • jane

      At 6:30 am Port Authority Twitter had nothing about routes not running.

  • Thomas J Duttine

    That’s the way Port Auth. does things…..When you are going to get a lot of phone calls and complaints, you just shut everything down and say it’s broke!!!!

    • Daniel

      I agree with Thomas. Port Authority management needs to be replaced. You should know that during a major snowstorm the website will get lots of hits. Have a server that will handle the increase of traffic. And if the website goes down pull people from the executive office to man the phones. Mr. Bland can you take calls please?? It does not take a brain surgeon to let people know if the bus is running.

  • The Short Bus

    Port Authority is completely useless and needs to be dissolved and started over.

    • shortbus@pat.org

      Because of something they have no control over, like say the weather? Give them a break and get back on the Short Bus!

      • Daniel

        They do not have control over the weather but they do have control over the website and the ability to answer telephone calls in a prompt manner.

    If you waited for a bus not listed above, there is no wonder it never came. Every bus BUT the ones listed were not running.

  • chuckie
