What inquiring minds really want to know is how Pittsburgh’s bus service, now to be called Pittsburgh Regional Transit, got to be called the Port Authority in the first place; it does not exercise authority over ports, at least as near as I can tell. The closest it comes to this is rights of way that somehow traverse rivers and “T” (light rail) stations near those rivers. But I can just about guarantee that a lot of riders will wish they’d spend the money on improving service instead of new paint jobs.
