Port Authority Announces Detours for St. Patrick's Day Parade

Multiple Port Authority bus routes will see temporary stop changes, and detoured or truncated routing during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade scheduled for Saturday, March 13.

Due to a change in the parade staging area, many bus routes passing through the Strip District will be detoured as early as 8 a.m., with other detours starting around 9 a.m. Additionally, bus routes coming from the South Hills and West End will terminate at Station Square, where riders continuing into Downtown can transfer to the T for free; the 28X Airport Flyer also will serve Station Square, temporarily bypassing Downtown. A number of routes will terminate at the East Busway’s Penn Station and a temporary rail shuttle will take riders to Steel Plaza.

Throughout Downtown and the Strip District, certain stops will not be served for the duration of the parade; temporary stops will be served in their place. Regular stops and routes are expected to resume around 3 p.m.
