How to get to OpenStreetsPGH

Foot/Bike

If you’re in the surrounding neighborhoods, we encourage you to walk or ride to any portion of the route!

Hop on public transit and make it an adventure. You can use Port Authority’s online schedule finder tool, or download the new Transit App to help plan your journey.

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.
