The Port Authority says a smoking fan is causing some issues with bus and “T” service this afternoon in the Mount Washington transit tunnel.
The Port Authority’s light rail service resumed running early Monday before the morning rush hour. It was the first time trains had run past Wood Street since a derailment Friday night injured three people, sending one to the hospital.
Three people were hurt and the Wood Street Station had to be shut down Friday night when a Port Authority light rail car derailed in Downtown Pittsburgh.
Some riders on the North Shore Connector wound up making an unplanned walk through the tunnel Thursday morning. And while they were walking, other riders were waiting on T platforms wondering what was going on.
Sunday’s Steelers game and the Pitt game on Saturday will be two big tests for the North Shore Connector.
If you’re using the trolley or buses this weekend, be ready for some delays.
The Kenny Chesney-Tim McGraw concert at Heinz Field on Saturday proved to be a test for the Port Authority’s North Shore Connector. “It was larger than a sellout Pirates game type of event, so we were a little bit cautious going in,” Port Authority spokesman Jim Ritchie said.
With all the new riders the Port Authority is taking a look at different fare systems. One option being considered is the so-called “proof of pay” system, also known as the honor system.
The way you pay to ride the bus, the T or the Incline will soon be changing. The Port Authority is in its final phase of developing the Connect Card electronic fare system.
Some big changes are coming to the Port Authority’s light rail system as more than a dozen stops will soon be eliminated.
Commuters experienced some delays on the T today due to crews working on the Red Line.
The Port Authority plans to cut 13 “T” stops starting June 25. For more details, visit: PortAuthority.org. Traymore (Pennant) Hampshire (Fallowfield or Coast) Boustead (Shiras or Belasco) Neeld (Shiras) Kelton (Dormont or Potomac) Martin Villa […]
The Port Authority says trolley riders should expect significant detours and delays on Saturday because of maintenance work. Blue line stops south of Washington Junction will be served by shuttle buses. Red line service will […]
A trolley derailment, which caused significant delays over the weekend appears to have been caused by human error. Sources told KDKA-TV Investigator Marty Griffin that there is no concern of it being sabotage and was simply operator and supervisor error.
What kept Pirates fans waiting at the Gateway T station on Mother’s Day wasn’t a lack of manpower or car shortages. It turned out to be a derailed car at South Hills Junction heading towards downtown Pittsburgh at about 1 p.m. – a peak time for going to the Pirate game.
