Take action

The County’s new Allegheny Go program will enable half-price fares for 130,000 residents! Transit riders celebrate this announcement as a major step toward a more accessible transit system for all.

On the afternoon of May 20th advocates from the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council, Just Harvest, the Alliance for Police Accountability, and Pittsburghers for Public Transit celebrated as we stood alongside Allegheny County Executive Sara Innamorato, and leadership from the Department of Human Services and Pittsburgh Regional Transit to launch the Allegheny Go program, a brand-new program to enable more than 130,000 of our neighbors to access transit for half fare.

The program will enable all residents who currently receive SNAP/EBT benefits and their entire household to access half-priced transit fare on all Pittsburgh Regional Transit buses and trains.

This is an incredible milestone in our campaign for more affordable fares. Since our campaign kicked off more than 4 years ago our advocacy has encouraged thousands of transit riders, hundreds of volunteers, dozens of elected officials, and dozens of organizations to uplift the call for more affordable fares. We would not be here today if it was not for their organizing. You can check out fairfaresnow.com to learn more about the campaign’s history.

The Allegheny Go program goes live on June 3rd. We encourage all people who receive SNAP/EBT to learn more about Allegheny Go and apply when the application becomes available 6/3/24. Additionally, we encourage all people who were included in the County’s year-long discount fare pilot program to check their phones and emails, because invitations went out last week for them to join the trial phase ahead of the June 3rd launch.

Its time to celebrate! We invite all of our partners and fellow advocates to join us for a toast and training on how to sign people up for the new Allegheny Go program!

Campaign History

This victory only comes after years of community organizing by transit riders, organizations, and elected representatives. We’re celebrating the County’s half-price fare announcement as a major milestone towards our goal of a fully zer-fare program.

Thanks to Allegheny County Executive Sara Innamorato, the Allegheny County Department of Human Services, and Pittsburgh Regional Transit. Your leadership will be critical to ensure that riders enroll in the program and we can bring more accessible transit to all.

Fare Relief for a Full Recovery Interviews

Transit fares in Allegheny County are some of the most expensive in the United States. Removing the barrier of fares would be transformational for residents of our county. 


We are winning this campaign because thousands of riders have taken action with more than 100 Allegheny County-based organizations to demand change!
