Mar 20: Bus Rapid Transit meeting

The Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition and Sustainable Pittsburgh are co-sponsoring a public meeting intended to provide information about, answer questions and discuss concerns  from the public about the Allegheny County Port Authority’s Rapid Transit proposal.

A coalition of 40 stakeholder organizations is investigating the potential for BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) in the Downtown-Oakland-East End corridor.  BRT is intended to improve public transportation.  It differs from standard bus service, having more comfortable buses, more regular service, upgraded stops and stations, and real-time rider information.

Come hear about how the potential transit project may serve Squirrel Hill, and express your opinions.

6 p.m. at The Children's Institute, 1405 Shady Avenue. Pittsburgh 15217.  More information is available at
