Pittsburgh Buses Endanger Oakland Pedestrians, Says Complaint

Pittsburgh bus

Pedestrians in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Oakland have filed complaints about Port Authority buses. They say that the buses are running red lights and endangering pedestrian safety.

Carnegie Mellon University employees have filed complaints with city council saying that buses aren't obeying red lights at the intersection of Forbes Avenue and Morewood Street. According to the complaint, "Every day someone is nearly hit by a bus when it should be safe for them to cross the street. Many children, blind people and otherwise disabled people cross this intersection."

A Port Authority spokesman said that an officer in an unmarked police car has been dispatched to the intersection to monitor buses' activity. The authority said this practice will continue until they're certain pedestrians in the area are safe.
