Pittsburgh Travel Guide

Getting Around Pittsburgh

Downtown Pittsburgh is compact and designed to be enjoyed by pedestrians, with parks and plazas spaced out between the office towers and shopping streets. If you need to travel a little further, however, descend to the subway, known in Pittsburgh as the ''T'', a small but clean and reliable light rail system that covers a four-stop loop. A branch of the subway also crosses under the Monogahela River and emerges above ground to serve the southern suburbs. The city has an extensive bus network with multiple routes connecting downtown to the attractions on the north side, Oakland and the surrounding neighbourhoods. The Central Business District is a Free Fare Zone and buses are free from 4am to 7pm daily, while the ''T'' is free 24 hours a day. Visitors are always particularly keen to ride the historic Duquesne and Monongahela Incline cars up Mount Washington for a breathtaking view. Pittsburgh''s taxi cabs need to be called by telephone or hired at a taxi rank.
