Pittsburgh's South Busway


R62A 1991

Recommended Posts

I've conquered all 3 now. Except I didn't bring my camera for the East, which is by far the best of them all. I didn't take any real good pics, but here are some. Some info first:

This is the first busway in the United States apparently, and it shows its age through some real bumpy parts.

It shares trackage with the T in some places. I was shocked! I assumed it would have its own road and the T would have its own track. Nope.

No one was at any of the stops on the Busway. And you'll see that they're not as big as the ones on the West anyway:

South end at Glenbury:

Here comes my bus:

And afterwards, once I got to downtown & Oakland again.

My next step is to actually take the T. And I only have 2 more days to do it. I'll try. Special thanks to Jonesy, who's provided good insight on transit here. Hope you enjoyed. I'll get better with this camera soon.
