Taking the “T”

We moved to Pittsburgh more than 5 years ago and since that cold February, I’ve been meaning to ride on the city’s subway/light rail system known as the T. The official name for the transport system is the Pittsburgh Light Rail, which covers a total of 26.2 miles.

The T doesn’t cover that wide of an area compared to some of the other metro systems we know. It traces a mainly north-south route with one terminus just north of the Central Business District and two termini in the South Hills.

The system has one perk: if you are traveling exclusively in the downtown corridor your ride is free. If you live in the South Hills and need to commute into the downtown area on a regular basis the T might be a good way to get into town.

We, on the other hand, have tried it on a few occasions and just haven’t found it a useful method of transportation. We’re close enough to the downtown area that it’s faster if we skip the T and walk.
