OpenStreetsPGH is returning with 3 routes in 2022

Foot/Bike

If you’re in the surrounding neighborhoods, we encourage you to walk or ride to any portion of the route! The route is just a few blocks away from the Three Rivers Heritage Trail in Downtown.

Transit

Hop on public transit and make it an adventure. Please note that buses are a bit slower on Sundays. You can use Port Authority’s online schedule finder tool, or download the new Transit App to help plan your journey. 

South – Bus Lines: 39, 41, 51, or “T” redline

West – Bus Lines: 38, 27, or 26

East – Bus Lines: 61A, 61B, 61C, 61D

North – Bus Lines: 1, 2, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, and 17

Driving

While the OpenStreetsPGH route is closed to car traffic, there is street parking available near the route. For safety reasons, there is no parking along the route during the event. We will begin towing cars still parked on the route at 6 AM on the day of the event to ensure that the course is clear and safe for the event.

If it is accessible to you we encourage active or mass transportation to get to OpenStreetsPGH. Pittsburgh geography does not make that an easy feat, thus we suggest looking for street parking on roads parallel and perpendicular to the route. There are several garages in Downtown and the Strip District.

Note: The Rite-Aid Parking lot on the corner of 40th St and Butler St is reserved for ADA parking only.

Car traffic will be prohibited on a 4 mile stretch: Market Square to Penn Ave, along Penn Ave and on to Butler St ending at McCandless Ave.
