Burrelli Transit Service

Acquired by PAT on March 16, 1964

Leonardo Burrelli started service in 1927 with two jitneys operating between East Pittsburgh and North Braddock. A second route was started in 1930 to connect Braddock and Chalfant via Forest Hills. A third route was started in 1942 to serve Braddock and Crescent Hills in Penn Township. Although started as a "temporary" route, the line, and an extension to Churchill Cemetery, became permanent in 1946. Part of the line was restricted because it duplicated a Deere Brothers route. Miller bus Lines went bankrupt in 1949, and Burrelli acquired those rights, adding Braddock-Forest Hills, Braddock-Wilkinsburg and the "Maplewood" local service.

Burrelli incorporated in 1956 as Westinghouse Valley Trailways. Although this company had the Trailways name, it was completely unrelated to the National Trailways Bus System.
