The 60V Evans Avenue route was initially a proposed route that originated from the former Pittsburgh Railways feeder bus route 233 Evans Street that started on 05/28/53. Originally the 99 Evans Street, this
McKeesport feeder route replaced a former trolley shuttle route and was renumbered to the 233 on 11/13/60.
The 60V was listed by PAT in the early route information used to assign
routes from the independent operators to the PAT numbering system.
Garages assigned to the 60V:
- None - Most likely would have run out of the McKeesport garage.
None - Route never ran
Evans Street (Avenue) and Bailey Ave via Evans Street (Avenue), Fifth Avenue, Market Street, Jerome Blvd to Water Street. Returning via Fifth Avenue and Evans Street (Avenue).
A one way trip on the regular routing took approximately
As The PRCo acquisition occurred on 03/01/64 and the Penn Transit acquisition occurred on 03/02/64. The 60V may have run for 1 day although we have found no information to support this or to support the possibility that PAT had Penn Transit reroute their 60C/E equivelent to accomodate what would have been the 60V for 1 day.
The 60V was listed as a planned route on early PAT
route structure files prior to the transit operations starting on
Schedules (Known PAT issued schedules are listed):
None - No schedules issued.
The 60V Evans Avenue was merged into the 60C Grandview and the 60E Rainbow Gardens routes effective 03/02/64 as these two routes duplicated the service the 60V would have provided. The 60C and 60E were former Penn Transit routes that PAT rerouted slightly so as to eliminate the need for the 60V.
