The 67J McKeesport via
Blvd of the Allies can be traced back to the
Pittsburgh Railways Company. It
is one of the lesser known PAT routes and came into existence on 05/10/1930
as PRCo bus through bus route 18 and then the route designation became route
D on 11/13/1960 when PRCo renumbered all of the bus routes. This route was
one of the early cuts to streamline and consolidate transit service by PAT.
Garages assigned to the 67J:
- Manchester Garage - 03/01/64 - 09/08/64
The route used strictly window cards under PAT. The bus
may have been signed up as D McKeesport as it ran from Manchester and the
PRCo signs hadn't been replaced with the PAT signs but it would have carried
a 67J window card.
