Please help me keep this site alive...The costs of keeping this site up are getting very expensive, and come out of my own pocket, so hopefully, if you enjoy your visit, you can help me by making a donation to help me offset some of these costs. Anything at all is appreciated, and will help me keep this site updated and alive! The donations are processed through PayPal under PWConcepts, my subsidiary website.

It is our goal here to let you remember, through these pages, the way things used to be from the old days until current times.

Now, a little about me...


My name is Shawn, and I used to drive bus/trolley/incline for the Port Authority. I used to be assigned to the ROSS DIVISION, as operator 9100. I joined the Authority in June of 1993, and had a wonderful career there. I also spent time at Collier and 4 well enjoyed years on the rails.

Even though I am no longer at the Authority, but my love for Pittsburgh as a transit city will not die!

However, I am back in transit...Not at the Port Authority, as they havent hired in a while due to the budget issues, but I got hired on at NCATA. I believe I will be very happy here, and they seem like awesome people to work with a for... It's a family like setting.

In a effort to make this page unique, I am always hunting pictures of the following...

1- GMC RTS Buses

2- AM Generals

3- Colorful PCCS

4- Pittsburgh Railway's PCCs

5- Neoplan Pennliners

6- Any of our Regional Systems, such as NCATA, BCTA, WCTA, and so on...

And of course, the ill fated skybus at South Park, and whatever else that you care to contribute.

As you can imagine, it's very easy to get moden day pictures...However, as this is a history driven site, old photos of things that aren't here any more are especially needed. Please feel free to contribute any old stuff you may have that you would like to share, and see your name appear on our credits page!


Just for fun, I thought I'd throw in the old PAT mascot... None other than PAT Polite!

It was 1995...actually December of 95 when I started this website. It's hard to believe its 18 years old!

Hopefully it will last another 18! I celebrated with a massive update to the site at the end of December, and the site will be bigger and even better than before! I have much more planned in the works. The biggest updates usually occur on holidays...



I am going to now share some pages dedicated to EACH type of vehicle the Authority currently runs, that way you can simply click on each make and look at pictures. Here is the list...



Here are the retired vehicles we used to have. You can simply click on each one and you will be transported to the pictures gallery.



Now for some other pictures... There is a lot to explore, so have fun! I have mixed a lot of the bus and rail pictures here to make it so the other pages aren't so big!



Pictures from other transit authorities that serve Pittsburgh. Unlike our friends at SEPTA, we do it by each individual county here...(For now)



Here's some more things, related to this page and other things in general...
