67J McKeesport via Blvd of the Allies

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

Destination Signs:

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.

Route Highlights:

  • Started: 03/01/64 (date of PRCo acquisition)

  • Ended: 09/08/64 as part of PAT's early route consolidations

  • The 67J ran Monday through Friday with no Saturday, Sunday or holiday service.

  • This route only ran in the rush hour. Inbound in the morning and outbound in the evening. Service levels are not currently known.

  • This was a premium fare route under the PAT fare structure implemented on 08/30/64.

  • It is not currently known where the passenger stop restrictions were. Most through/premium fare routes had limited stops and made very few stops on roads that already had service.

  • Sources differ on the route name for the 67J. One lists it as the 67J McKeesport via Blvd of the Allies and another lists it as 67J McKeesport via Schenley Park.

Schedules (Known PAT issued schedules are listed):

There were no PAT schedules issued nor any folder number assigned for this route. The route used the old PRCo schedules due to the fact that the route was slated to be eliminated early.

Route Disposition:

The 67J was discontinued as part of PAT's elimination of duplicate services from the various independent operators.
