The Port Authority plans to establish temporary bus stops at the intersection of Penn Avenue and the new Eastside Drive entrance at the former Penn Mall Station. These stops will be put in place during the week of July 4, 2011 in time for the opening of the new Target store July 24.
These stops are in lieu of the permanent stops to be built along either side of Penn Avenue between Eastside Drive and the bridge over the railroad & East Busway.
The temporary inbound stop will be located at the “Stop Here on Red” sign on the Target side of Penn Avenue. This stop may be relocated or temporarily discontinued when a permanent shelter is constructed.
The temporary outbound stop will be located at the “Stop Here on Red” sign on Penn Avenue at Eastside Drive on the Penn Mall Station side of Penn Avenue. This location will not conflict with future shelter construction.
