Good News for the 33F

Reporter Mike Jones brought us some great news in Saturday's O-R: It looks like the Port Authority of Allegheny County's 33F bus will keep on rolling through McDonald!

From Mike's article:

The Port Authority of Allegheny County announced Friday it plans to cancel some of its proposed route cuts, including one of the two weekday routes through McDonald.

The 33F, which runs from the borough to Carnegie, where riders can catch a transfer bus into Pittsburgh, will remain on the schedule, albeit only during rush hour in the morning and afternoon.

PAT spokeswoman Carmen Bray said there will be "some level of service" before 9:30 a.m. and after 3 p.m. She said there may need to be some changes during those times to accommodate other routes and schedules.

"A lot of those details haven't been decided and we're still working on those plans," Bray said. "There will be rush hour service, but how those trips will be adjusted - when they begin and end, and the frequency of service - we're still working out."

The 28G route is still slated for elimination.
The 31E, which departs from Gladden and connects through Bridgeville, will remain on a limited schedule. The transit authority's Consumer Relations and Operations Committee approved the recommendations Friday and sent the revisions to the board of directors. A final decision will be made March 30.
