    Angie Cortz, who is stuck on the bus heading to Pittsburgh, told Channel 11 they have been there since around 1:30 p.m. Friday. 

    The bus was on the way from New York City.

    Cortz said there are around 19 people on the bus and some of them haven't eaten for 24 hours. 

    An official stopped by last night to see if there were any kids or anyone who had a medical emergency, but no one got off of the bus, according to Cortz.

    The Megabus made it back to Pittsburgh Saturday night. 

    The other Megabus, which left Pittsburgh and was heading to New York, was stranded for more than 24 hours, according to Keren Kedem, who was stuck on the bus.

    Kedem said they left Pittsburgh at 9:15 a.m. Friday. She said they hadn't seen a single trooper and they did not have any water on the bus. 

    There was a 5-year-old on the bus too, according to Kedem. 

    That bus arrived in New York later in the afternoon Saturday.
