"Take the "T"" Top 5 Page for this destination Pittsburgh Transportation Tip by Ewingjr98

Pittsburgh Transportation: 54 reviews and 102 photos


The "T" is Pittsburgh's light rail which runs from the area around Point State Park through downtown, then across the Mon to Station Square. From Station Square, the T splits, but the lines all run to the south. Between the 5 downtown stations, the T is free all day, every day. You pay upon exiting at Station Square. There is a fee for riding further, but I've never ridden beyond, so I'm not sure how it works! The cars are modern and clean...I saw no graffiti anywhere!

The existing rail lines stretch 25 miles and the initial phases were complete in 1985. Plans are in the works for the North Shore Connector project which will provide service to Heinz Field, PNC Park and beyond. This line could be complete in 2010.
