Has anybosy heard how the G20 Summit is effecting the PAT routes in the suburbs? People I work with are concerned that they can't get to work (which is in Churchill). For example, one girl I work with, she lives in Braddock. She has to get two busses to work (from Braddock to Wilkinsburg and transfer from there to Churchill via the 67A.) She is worried that all of the busses will stop running due to the summit.

My question is that PAT is very likely going to cut downtown service, but will those routes that serve downtown be available for outside of downtown? Are the busses going to go as far as Oakland and turn around?

Details are going to be in short supply until right before the conference for security reasons. But my understanding is that to the extent possible, PAT wants to reroute around whatever part of Downtown is closed to transit, and I have heard nothing to the effect of PAT actually closing entire routes just because they eventually serve Downtown.

That's what I told her. They can't cancel routes all together, people have to get around outside of town somehow.

I can't wait for this summit to be over with.
