Port Authority Working To Finalize Design And Funding For Bus Rapid Transit

Construction of Pittsburgh’s bus rapid transit or BRT project is expected to begin in late 2021. Port Authority of Allegheny County is working with a project management oversight consultant from the Federal Transit Administration to ensure the agency meets the remaining requirements, which include finalizing funding and design.

This summer, the federal government awarded nearly $100 million to the BRT project. Before the money can be released, Port Authority must show it has all other funding in hand. Chief development officer David Huffaker said they are in the final phases of doing so.
