Get Around On Campus & Off

One of the most exciting aspects of living in Pittsburgh is your proximity to the museums, shops, sporting events, restaurants, and theaters that define the city.

Whether you're headed for class or going out on the town, you can get there from here. Free campus shuttles run throughout Oakland. With your Panther Card, you can also ride fare-free on all Port Authority buses, trolleys, and inclines. And when it's after hours and you need a way home, SafeRider will pick you up and drive you to your doorstep.
