Can someone please shed some light on public transit in Pittsburgh? I have heard that riding the subway in town is "free". But we have to pay once we cross a river. I have also heard that there are no subway passes for maybe 1- day. Are any of these things true?
To give you some info, I will either be staying at the Renaissance Pittsburgh or the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center. Leaning more heavily towards the Renaissance.
And I am planning to go to:
1) Double Decker Red Bus
2) Just Ducky Tour
4) Heintz History Center
5) possibly one of the inclines
6) possibly PGN Center
7) and obviously restaurants for dinner
I will have a car, but wish to use it only sparingly in the downtown area.
I would like to depend on mass transit to get around town. Will be here for three nights. In other cities, we usually buy either a Two Day Pass or two ONE Day Passes. We like these passes since it gives unlimited service, as we are going to quite a few places.
But I have heard that Pittsburgh does not offer these passes. So, do I just pay single fares each time, or how does that work> P.S. I may need to take a combination of subway + bus.
