Thanks to two funding agreements, the Free Fare Zone in Downtown will be extended to include the new T stations on the North Shore.

Allegheny Station fares will be free thanks to an agreement with the Steelers and Rivers Casino. Riders using the North Side Station - located under the West General Robinson Street Garage - will enjoy free fares courtesy of the Stadium Authority and Alco Parking. The new Gateway Center Station also will open on March 25.
