89C Homewood North

Route 89C came into the PAT route structure as a trial route to take residents from the Homewood and Homewood North neighborhoods to Penn Mall in East Liberty. It is an example of PAT's rapid expansion of services during the 1970's.

East Liberty Division - 01/07/73 - 02/19/77

Destination Signs:

Route ran with window cards and destination signs.

Approximate one way trip time was 10 minutes.
