Public Hearing & Comment Period for Fare Policy Change Proposal

Port Authority of Allegheny County will hold a series of public hearings to receive public comment on a proposal aimed at bringing greater equity and flexibility to the agency's fare system. The proposal would eliminate the 25-cent discount for ConnectCard users, replace paid transfers by including three hours of unlimited rides with the $2.75 base fare, and transition rolling passes to time-based versus calendar-based fare products.

If approved, the changes would take effect as soon as feasible in Port Authority fiscal year 2022, which begins on July 1, 2021. Comments and testimony will be collected for the revised fare policy proposal during three on line and telephonic hearing sessions:
