PAT Provides Free Transit For Jan. 1

Penguin fans can enjoy free public transit across the county and to Heinz Field for the Winter Classic New Year's Day. Pepsi MAX is covering the day’s transit fares for all Port Authority Transit services around the city.

“The free rides are valid on any Port Authority service that is running on New Year’s Day,” PAT spokeswoman Heather Pharo says. “That includes any bus route, T route and also the [Monongahela] Incline.”

Port Authority will also be running a shuttle to the stadium on a schedule similar to a Sunday Steelers game. The schedule is available on the Port Authority website. All transit routes will run on a holiday schedule, which Pharo says is similar to a Sunday schedule.

“In most cases if a route runs on a Sunday, it will run on a holiday,” Pharo says.

Pharo says the PAT isn’t concerned with too much usage causing problems because the day is still a holiday and the majority of the traffic will be heading towards the game.
