KeepPGHmoving.com: Voice Your Concerns Today!
Are you concerned that Pennsylvania's transportation funding crisis will affect everyone who lives in the state, the region, and the City of Pittsburgh? You’re not alone. The PDP and many other people, businesses, universities, and organizations are worried, too!
Without a resolution to the transportation funding crisis by June 30, 2012, Port Authority will raise fares in July and reduce service by 35% in September.
Other impacts on public transit include:
- 20,000 daily transit riders will lose transit service.
- 44 routes out of 102 will be eliminated.
- 400 – 500 Port Authority employees laid off.
- 1 – 2 bus operating divisions will close.
- Service reductions on every remaining route.
In order to stimulate legislative action in Harrisburg and resolve the Pennsylvania transportation crisis, the PDP launched a grass-roots, community-driven campaign to raise awareness of Pennsylvania's transportation funding crisis and to encourage the community to become part of the transportation funding solution!
The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC) is the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for our region. View the presentation to find out SPC's estimate of what the impacts will be on our city and our region if the Port Authority’s proposed 35% transit service cuts are implemented on September 2. Their conclusions are that, with fewer transit riders, there will be more cars on our roadways resulting in more congestion and longer commute times – plus greater demand for Downtown’s limited number of parking spaces and more competition for the fewer park-n-ride lot spaces that are left. While there are no big surprises, it makes clear how devastating these transit cuts will be for all of us.
