Tips for Taking Public Transit

Pittsburgh Regional Transit (PRT) is the public transit agency for the greater Pittsburgh area, providing bus, light rail, incline and paratransit service to about 230,000 riders daily. With one organization, it's easy to ride from Pittsburgh International Airport (take the 28X) to Downtown and all around the city for one low price. This includes our picturesque inclines!

PRT fare is $2.75 for unlimited rides within a three hour period. Pay or show your ticket as you enter the bus or the "T" - Pittsburgh's light rail system. Exact change is required when paying with cash as bus drivers do not carry change. Travel between the Downtown and North Shore is free on the light rail system.

To make planning even easier, download the Ready2Ride app (Apple/Google Play) to manage ticket purchases digitally. The Transit app (Apple/Google Play) is also helpful for planning and navigating to your route and seeing when the next bus is due to arrive.
