Allegheny County is currently considering a new on-street Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service. The first focus is to link Downtown Pittsburgh with Oakland and other neighborhoods in the East End, and they’re looking for your input.

The BRT public forum will take place Monday, Sept. 20 at Duquesne University. The forum, happening from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., will occur in the University’s Power Center Ballroom (1015 Forbes Ave.).

There will be breakout sessions about BRT benefits and challenges, and stories from other cities with BRT including Kansas City and Los Angeles. PennDOT Secretary of Transportation Allen Biehler will be on hand, as well as planning, development and transportation professionals with BRT knowledge.
