I am currently using mass transit when I work out of the Pittsburgh offices. I take the 16A or Ohio Valley Flyer (OV) and use the Park and Ride at Glenfield. It’s great on nasty days. I can read on the bus and don’t have to deal with the hassle of traffic or parking or the expenses. The buses run regularly enough that I can get to work very early or stay late if I have deadlines to meet.

I am one of the lucky ones that the Port Authority bus picks me up close to my driveway and drops me off almost at the front door of my office. My employer is encouraging all employees to register with CommuteInfo to assist with parking and transportation issues. Thank you, CommuteInfo for your assistance.

I was spending too much money on gas and parking. Eventually a new bus route from the North Hills directly to Oakland became available. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful this is. I barely add on any time with the commute and it is saving me quite a bit of my paycheck!
