Station and Shelter Overview

The Port Authority of Allegheny County, Allegheny County, the City of Pittsburgh, and the Urban Redevelopment Authority are designing a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project that will run from Downtown Pittsburgh, through the Uptown and Oakland neighborhoods of the City of Pittsburgh, and into the eastern suburbs and Monongahela Valley of Allegheny County.

This survey is to help guide the Downtown-Uptown-Oakland-East End BRT Project Team towards designing bus shelters and stations that best reflect our community. All questions have the option to select more than one answer, reflecting the fact that certain designs may be more appropriate in certain areas. Please feel free to leave additional input about each item you choose if you select more than one response. We thank you in advance for your input.

Basic Elements of a Transit Shelter - For Informational Purposes
The shelters at BRT stations within this project will also contain:
- Lighting

- Real-time bus arrival information
- Off-board fare collection options (Ticket vending machines and/or ConnectCard validators)
- Features for persons with disabilities to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Basic universal design principles so that persons of all ages and abilities can safely and easily access shelters and their amenities
