64 East Pittsburgh - Wilkinsburg (bus)

Route 64 East Pittsburgh - Wilkinsburg bus route came into PAT's route structure from the former streetcar route 64 East Pittsburgh. While the route was undergoing the conversion from rail to bus, weekend bus substitution was done and the buses kept the same route number as the streetcars to help avoid confusing the public. Once the conversion was completed, the 64 designation was retired and the route placed into the PAT corridor numbering system.

Garages assigned to the 64:

Homewood Garage - 09/04/66 - 01/28/67

Destination Signs:

Route ran with window cards and destination signs.
