Since I can't avoid the topic I will just repost an old transit map I have below. A longer transit post isn't in me honestly. Since the Port Authority cut so many suburban routes a few years ago, they lost any hope of maintaining even passive support by the median voter and thus lost the battle for political support for any other path than the one we are clearly on.
Still, it is all just sad. As a disclaimer in one of the first posts here
I pointed out that my 2nd spoken word was in fact 'bus'.. likely trying to hail a 54C. Now where are we? In the fall campaign I did try to introduce a simple question
that still needs to be answered. Will there be public transit in Allegheny County eight years from now? Still needs to be answered.. strike that, it still needs to be asked.
So the map. Part of the news on the announced route cuts is that they include virtually all 'express' routes. So the map below isn't from all that long ago. Note the Port Authority used to have more 'express' routes than they will routes in total once this round of cuts is over with.
