Route 67 Braddock - Swissvale bus
route came into PAT's route structure from the former streetcar route 67 Rankin -
Braddock. 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 67 designation was
retired and the route placed into the PAT corridor numbering system.
