“We stand at the very beginning of a new era in public transportation,” said Pittsburgh Regional Transit CEO Katharine Kelleman at a press conference in Downtown Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh Regional Transit, or PRT, will make some changes to the bus, light-rail, and incline system that currently serves Allegheny County and some communities on the county’s border. Most noticeably, PRT will be moving to a new, and more consistent color scheme.
All PRT buses will be teal and yellow. Kelleman said that Port Authority buses since 2004-5 have been different colors, which can be confusing to riders at times. Port Authority buses are red, yellow, green, and purple.
