Federal funding will support restoration of transit service in Pittsburgh

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is announcing $780,000 from the American Rescue Plan for the Port Authority of Allegheny County. This funding will support planning efforts aimed at restoring transit services that were previously curbed due to COVID-19, allowing passengers to enjoy restored transit services across Southwestern PA.

“In Southwestern Pennsylvania, thousands of people rely on public transit to get to work and school, to travel to the grocery store and the pharmacy, to visit family and friends. While the pandemic impacted the Port Authority’s ability to maintain full services, this funding from the American Rescue Plan will help get it back on track while boosting the region’s economy.  I will continue to bring transportation funding to Pennsylvania and advocate for robust infrastructure investments for the Commonwealth,” said Senator Casey.

The Port Authority also received $84 million in April 2022 from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
