Getting Around Pittsburgh
Most major airlines and some budget carriers fly to Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). The Airport has 2 main buildings – the Landside Terminal and the Airside Terminal. The Airside Terminal consists of 4 concourses.
Ground Transportation from Airport
Once arriving in Pittsburgh take the People Mover tram to the Landside Terminal (one and only stop). From the terminal head to the lower level for baggage and ground transportation.
Costs about $40, exit through the “commercial” doors and head toward the taxi stand. Area cabs will be waiting.
The price varies, cars are authorized to pick-up and drop-off at the terminal. From Door 4, find the commercial pickup – ride sharing signs.

The fare between the airport and Downtown is $2.75, exact change is required. When using a Connect Card the fare is $2.50. The card can be purchased and loaded at the machine located near Door 6. The driver cannot help with your luggage. Once the bus arrives, get off at the 2nd stop (Liberty Ave. at Wood St.) Head up 6th Street for 1 block.
