Port Authority of Allegheny County will host a community discussion about public transit at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Palisades Ballroom, 100 Fifth Ave. at Water Street.
A spokesperson said the event is designed as a public forum for residents of the Mon-Yough area to learn more about long-range planning, service, fares and digital applications.
Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions of Port Authority officials, the spokesperson said.
The Palisades is near the 55, 56 and 59 bus routes, which stop at the corner of Lysle Boulevard and Market Street.
Additional meetings are planned March 11 in Oakdale, March 18 in Bethel Park and April 1 in Springdale.
