Quarterly Update

April 2024: This project is partially funded but not expected to start until 2024 at the earliest. 

About the Project 

This project will involve PRT working with the Borough of Wilkinsburg, the surrounding communities, and stakeholders to improve the existing Hamnett Station, located along the Martin Luther King Jr. East Busway in Wilkinsburg. 

The resulting plan will include a conceptual design for a new Hamnett Station with three main areas of focus: 

- Station Access: Making it easier and safer to get to the station, particularly for pedestrians, cyclists, and non-auto users. 

- Improving Station Design: Making PRT facilities more comfortable and easier to use. 

- Opportunities for Transit-Oriented Development: Understanding what types of community-supported development are possible on PRT-owned property at this site and how to better connect the station to dense development within walking distance of the station.
