Save Our Transit
by Jamie Walker Sunday, Jan. 28, 2007 at 6:14 PM 814-279-9943 2312 Murray Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15217

On January 22, 2007, over a hundred Pittsburghers rallied together to protest the proposed Port Authority Transit service cuts. Facing a deficit of $80 million, the Pittsburgh Port Authority plans to cut services by 25%, eliminating 222 bus and rail routes entirely. They also plan to raise fares by as much as 75 cents and to cut the jobs of 400 transit workers by June 2007. Help spread the message to our politicians that Pennsylvania needs more funding instead of stranding thousands of Pittsburgh riders without public transportation.
