Local group calling for better communication from Pittsburgh Regional Transit about routes

According to Pittsburghers for Public Transit, or PPT, improvements need to be made. The key takeaway: reliability is poor.

PPT is calling on Pittsburgh City Council to help transit riders by passing legislation on things like pairing affordable housing with transit.
