    Port Authority Bus in background on Fifth Ave behind Carlow students

    Carlow University is located in a section of Pittsburgh that is extremely well served by local public transit. The Port Authority provides bus service throughout Allegheny County, including Oakland and Pittsburgh—with numerous bus routes on Fifth Avenue along the southern edge of Carlow's campus. There is a bus stop at the eastern edge of campus at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Chesterfield Road and another stop directly in front of A.J. Palumbo Hall of Science and Technology near Parking Lot A and the corner of Fifth Avenue and Craft Avenue. If you are taking a bus to campus please access the Port Authority website or use Google Transit to plan your trip. In addition, numerous routes can take you to shopping centers, downtown, and beyond. 

    If you'd like to purchase a discounted bus pass throughout the year, please contact the Student Hub at 412.578.6389.
