You can also try Google Maps. Click “Get Directions,” enter your start and finish locations and then click the Bus icon to change from driving directions to public transit directions. Very handy!

The standard, 1 one-way fare is $2.75 with cash. For transfers, riders paying cash will pay another full fare.  Operators will not make change so riders should use exact change.
A Connectcard is a smart card that is reusable and can store passes or a cash value. Riders with a ConnectCard pay $2.50 for a one-way trip.

Transfers are $1 with a ConnectCard. ConnectCards can be purchased at Port Authority's Downtown Service Center, most  Giant Eagle locations, and other select retailers.
Children and the disabled pay a reduced fair. 

Current route and schedule information is available at www.portauthority.org, on the buses, at "T" stations, and at the Port Authority Service Center.
