Planning is underway for major bus transit service improvements in several Pennsylvania
cities. Allentown is preparing to introduce an enhanced bus route network in the Lehigh
Valley’s heaviest transit corridors. Philadelphia is planning enhanced bus service for Roosevelt
Boulevard which would coincide with a plan to reimagine the boulevard, while in Pittsburgh
the City and Port Authority are partnering to integrate a plan for bus rapid transit into a
proposed Eco-Innovation District. Agency representatives will provide their perspectives on
these projects.
