How About the Exurbs?
Back to the future!
I was speaking with a friend who reminded me that back in the 60s/70s she was able to catch a train from McKeesport to Pittsburgh and back every day to her job on Grant Street. Our population is spread through Allegheny County. Not everyone can afford to live in the city limits of Pittsburgh. Most bustling cities have solid transportation open to their exurbs (think DC, NYC). I feel as if the Port Authority vision is limited by thinking only about how to improve public transportation between the golden triangle and Oakland.
