Topic: A new 12-month pilot program is providing free and discounted transit fairs to low-income riders

Guest: Dan Yablonsky of Pittsburghers for Public Transit

How Topic Discussed: Enrollment is now open for a new 12-month pilot program to test how providing free and discounted transit fares to low-income riders on Pittsburgh Regional Transit. How can people enroll in the program? How many people will it serve? Why was the program created by the Allegheny County Department of Human Services? Who qualifies for the Allegheny County Discounted Fares Pilot Program? Why is it a pilot rather than a permanent program? How does the pilot work? What do transit advocates hope the program will demonstrate?
