Port Authority announces services changes for New Year's Day


Riders planning to use Port Authority service on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day should be aware of the following service details.

New Year’s Eve service will operate on weekday schedules. Riders who intend to use public transportation to attend Highmark First Night Pittsburgh should check transit schedules ahead of time, as not all routes offer service after midnight.

Additionally, more than 20 bus routes will be detoured in Downtown Pittsburgh and the North Shore due to street closures related to Highmark First Night Pittsburgh events. Detours begin at around 10 a.m. and will be in effect through the end of service.

From 4 p.m. until end of service on New Year’s Eve, children under 12 can ride for free when accompanied by an adult wearing a Highmark First Night Pittsburgh button.

The Downtown Service Center and Customer Service phone line will be open weekday hours.

New Year’s Day service will use holiday schedules. This includes a reduced schedule on the light rail system.

The Downtown Service Center will be closed and Port Authority’s Customer Service phone line will be open holiday hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For more information, visit or call Port Authority Customer Service at 412-442-2000 (TTY 412-231-7007).
