Port Authority of Allegheny County is considering eliminating its multi-zone system and switching to a single-zone, $2.50 flat fare, pay-on-enter system that would give riders a financial incentive to use their ConnectCard and make getting from A to B a better overall experience and value. Unlike every other fare proposal Port Authority has implemented in the last 35 years, this proposal would lower the average cost for many riders in Allegheny County.
