Thanks to the Stadium Authority of the City of Pittsburgh, the Steelers, the Rivers Casino and ALCO Parking Corporation, travel between Downtown and the new 1.2 mile extension of the Port Authority‘s T System known as the North Shore Connector will be free for the next three years.
Fares at both Allegheny Station, which is next to Heinz Field, and the North Side Station, which is next to PNC Park, will be included in the Downtown free fare zone. If you work Downtown, parking on the North Side and taking the connector in will save you money. North Side Station is attached to the West General Robinson Street Garage (ALCO), which offers parking rates which rival many of the Downtown garages. The North Shore Connector is currently scheduled to open March 25, 2012.
These are just a few of our favorites!
