Port Authority of Allegheny County releases NEXTransit plan

The Port Authority of Allegheny County has released their plan to make the Pittsburgh region more accessible, and one idea includes an aerial tram system in the Strip District.The agency’s long-range plan includes 18 projects that they said would improve transit in our area.Rich Wagner of Carrick is a frequent rider of the T.”It’s not too bad from where I park at to here,” he said. “It’s only about a 20 minute ride.”Same for Richard DiBella of Mt. Lebanon. He takes a 20 minute light rail ride into the city, daily.”I think there are a lot of other areas in town that could use the support of either busing or T other than the South Hills where I reside,” he said.That’s exactly what the Port Authority of Allegheny County has been working on over the past two years, and with a lot of public input. It’s called “Next Transit” and is a 25-year plan to improve transit in our area.The most requested infrastructure includes extending the T to the airport and adding a T line from downtown Pittsburgh to Oakland. The plan would also create a downtown transit center, a rapid transit link through the Parkway East and Allegheny Valley South Bank corridor, and bus lanes along McKnight Road in the North Hills.But a high priority on the list of projects, and an attractive one, is an aerial tram system that would connect the Hill District to the Strip District.”I think we should have one there and Mt. Washington, to be honest with you,” said DiBella. “I don’t know why they’ve never had one from Mt. Washington over to the city. It would be fantastic.”The cost for all of these projects is anywhere from $3-4 billion.The Port Authority is holding four public meetings on the plan starting on Wednesday, July 21.To read the details on the 80-page plan: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T5XL4LbdsCqCWK2EJElLYLun9IprS20q/view
