Pittsburgh Regional Transit is embarking on an ambitious multi-year construction effort by investing more than $150 million to bolster the safety, reliability, and longevity of our region’s light-rail infrastructure.

PRT will combine multiple projects that were initially intended to be completed separately to streamline operations, maximize efficiency, and minimize disruptions while enhancing the overall reliability and safety of this critical transit corridor.
