Pittsburgh Regional Transit will hold two public meetings next month to provide updates on the upcoming Downtown-Uptown-Oakland Bus Rapid Transit project.

The $291 million project will include 24 new stations, increased transit reliability, and increased pedestrian and bicyclist safety with the construction of dedicated bus and bike lanes between the second-and third-largest business districts in Pennsylvania.

A request for proposals for the construction phase in downtown Pittsburgh is expected to be issued later this year with construction beginning in the first half of 2023. An RFP for the second phase – Uptown and Oakland – is expected to be issued in 2023, with construction on that phase beginning in 2024.

The meetings will be held on Tuesday, August 2 at 6 pm and Thursday, August 11 at noon.
