    They have been the most corrupt, mismanaged service for 6 decades. They have had troubles BUT they never took them seriously. Someone always bailed them out. CORRUPT CORRUPT CORRUPT!

      I thought PAT was put together in the mid sixties.Six decades ago would be like ,1951,right?

    The Port Authority could probably save millions just by cutting out certain bus stops. It feels like throughout the North Hills (Bellevue, Avalon, and West View), plus on the North Side that busses stop every 30 seconds to pick up riders. I realize some people are handicapped, but most people should be able to walk an extra block to catch a bus. Ridiculous. Also, getting that smart card system would help reduce problems when fare boxes are broken and people ride for free. Of course you will have no innovation with a transit system when unions and politicians are calling the shots. Of course when there’s no competition, then improvements will never be made (even though Pittsburgh has a half-decent system compared to other metro areas).

    transportation was abundant during the years of trolleys, taxis, buses and trains.. especially trolleys.
    The PAT when originated was meant with good intentions but became very
    political then as well as now…
    Politics gets rid of jobs and creates jobs.. the PAT has and will prevent
    transportation systems other than the PAT…

    Light rail in Oakland means the end of the parking racket. Why would we do that with all those institutions there?????
