About the Project 

This project will involve PRT working with the City of Pittsburgh, the surrounding communities, and stakeholders to improve the existing Heron Station, located along the Martin Luther King Jr. East Busway at the intersection of Polish Hill, Lower Lawrenceville, and the Strip District. 

The resulting plan will include a conceptual design for a new Herron Station with two 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, easier to use, and more attractive. 

The final product of this plan will be the 10% conceptual design for a new Herron Station that improves access, increases ridership, and raises the profile of this community asset. 

Visit the project’s engagement site to get the most up-to-date information and provide feedback on existing conditions using the mapping tool.
