Winter Weather Emergency Preparedness

As per the PENNDOT Bureau of Public Transportation:

In the event of a State announced Commercial Ban of Vehicles on the Interstate Highway, this does include TRANSIT BUSES.

If these events occur we will have no option but to CANCEL Pittsburgh service during the commercial ban. As always we will do our very best in communicating these emergency events in a timely manner so our passengers can make alternate plans.
