Connecting Communities Through Storytelling
Pittsburgh is a city of neighborhoods and rivers, and residents notoriously boast about rarely crossing these lines. It is the Northside or the Outside. But what connects our city unlike any person, place, or thing? The bus routes! Come hear Pittsburghers tell their stories about using public transportation and how these experiences have shaped relationships with people and neighborhoods outside of their own.


– Northsiders: Carla Arnold, Helena Edwards, Paul Matthews, and Anonymous

– Bus Drivers: Carla Brower, Carlyle Stokes, Omar Ingham
