In 1959, the Pennsylvania Legislature authorized the consolidation of 33 private transit carriers, many of which were in dire financial straits. By combining fare structures and centralizing operations, Port Authority established the first unified transit system in Allegheny County in March 1964.
In June 2022, Port Authority was rebranded to Pittsburgh Regional Transit.
We are governed by an 11-member Board appointed by the Allegheny County Executive, leaders from both parties in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate, and the Governor of Pennsylvania.
Our funding comes from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and the federal government as well as passenger fares and advertising revenue.
